Is Self-Awareness a Remote Dream?

Is Self-Awareness a Remote Dream?

I co-lectured in a workshop on leaders’ formation in Aqaba (South of Jordan) last week. The co-lecturer mentioned the Johari Window in his lecture. It was then the idea of this buzz spawned.

The Johari Window is represented in the image below. was originally created by Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham in 1955 as a tool to help people know their interpersonal communication and relationships.

3a69ece1.jpg

Self-awareness is knowing in which quadrant a person falls into. If a person doesn’t something that is known to others the (s)he falls in the blind spot. In contrast, if same person knows something about himself that is unknown to others then (s)he falls in the hidden-self. If same person knows about self what is known to others as well then (s)he falls in the public quadrant. Unknown to self and the public as well, then the person falls into the unknown quadrant.

Two questions prompted me to write this buzz. The first one is related to the fact that the more we know, the less we know for we discover how much more we don’t know. The unknown quadrant gets bigger and bigger and self-awareness becomes less understood.

In formulating a strategy, we need to know where we stand to know where we are going. The paradox is that the more we know where our selves stand now becomes less-known as we get to know more about ourselves. Are we chasing a shadow?

The second question relates to the butterfly effect that have growing impact with time. Today, I re-read a great buzz that was shared by @Tricia Mitchell . The buzz titled β€œThe Womb, The Home & The Workplace (Part 1)” discusses the effect of fear on babies in the womb and the impact this fear has on their lives afterwards. I commented on this buzz by β€œit is always great to read a thoughtful buzz again. I read yours and I pondered on "The effects of an absence of love in the womb and during childhood, especially the imprinting years (the first seven years of life), can extend far beyond the individual, and their community, it can have a global impact". This is a great illustration of the butterfly effect born in the womb. Small negligence that leads over time to the birth of a child filled with fear and hate to grow up and ruin the world. I believe this buzz is an eye-opener for all of us”.

The question is how can we be self-aware of what happened to us while we were still in the wombs of our mothers? How can we be self-aware of effects that started small and were allows to grow in us without realizing their seeds initiated in our mothers’ wombs?

I welcome your thoughts.

Yes and I have no trouble with your ideas here. Unfortunately, I didn't see your comment before because I received no notification. I know of my respect to your thoughts Roberto De la Cruz Utria. It is interesting that you mentioned habits in your comment Roberto De la Cruz Utria. This is because I drafting a buzz titled "Prisoners of Habits and Assumptions".

Please tag me when you publish your reflections dear Proma \ud83d\udc1d Nautiyal. If I try to select a great nugget of wisdom I shall be in trouble selecting one from your comment. There are at least three nuggets that you could expand each into a great buzz. These are: "we find it very hard to admit that we don't know a certain thing finding the "what" of what we are seeking After all, there are a 100 ways of looking at the same thing and accepting that fact is true learning in itself". You have a sharp mind my friend. Thank you also for sharing the buzz.

A great buzz, Sir Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. As we embrace the new year with a desire to know ourselves a bit better and open up the path to self-realization, this buzz can greatly help us in finding the "what" of what we are seeking in a more structured manner. The matter of retrospection and self-realization is, as it as, a grey area and structure is hard to come by here, so this buzz helps greatly. As we humans are an intelligent species, we find it very hard to admit that we don't know a certain thing. The "know it all" mask is often a facade donned to cover the insecurities of not actually knowing something. I have seen people who actually know a lot (more than average) speak in an extremely balanced way and with humility. They are open to listening to others, their thoughts and understanding of subject from a different perspective. They accept the fact that though they know a lot, still there is a lot more to learn and assimilate.After all, there are a 100 ways of looking at the same thing and accepting that fact is true learning in itself. In short, the true way of learning everything we don't know is to accept that we don't know it and we need to find out more. My guru (Yogananda Paramahansa) in his autobiography wrote about his memories of infancy and of past life. For those of us who are not as spiritually inclined, hypnotherapy can actually take us to those moments of warmth in the womb and even beyond. I have a lot more to add on this matter Sir. I will write a short buzz and tag you in it. Thank you for this thought provoking buzz.

Dear David Navarro L\u00f3pez- I am truly thrilled by your deep comment. I find it resonating with me to the highest level. You add a lot of weight to my previous buzz "Rubbery World": https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/rubbery-world From a different angle I mentioned how human bonding change from attachment to idea, thought or practice and then become more connected to people than own ideas, thoughts and practices and the effect this has on us. You wrote very solidly "So our community knowledge became more important than our individual knowledge, in order to survive". Not for a second, I would disagree with you". You expressed your thought in a very sophisticated manner.

Dear Ali, as always, you have put on the table a very interesting paradox. I would like to add another thrilling fact: What we know is stored in our memory. It is wrongly accepted that we store the reality as it really is, but we don't. We only remember the things our brain is ready for, we mould the reality to things we can understand, and act consequently. Some time along our evolution, when we abandoned the trees and started to live in the ground, we have lost part of our short-term memory capabilities and developed communication (language) skills instead, both capabilities residing very close to each other in our brains. So our community knowledge became more important than our individual knowledge, in order to survive. This is something we stubbornly try to keep as a true, and that is, we want to think as individuals belonging to a community, instead of thinking as a community, period. Most of our problems would be solved if we accepted this, like wars, social differences, hunger, etc. To know about ourselves then is absolutely true, we are chasing a shadow because we can no longer try to know about ourselves ignoring that we belong to a community. As human individuals, we could think we are "good". But when you look at us as species, you see that we are "not so good", in regards what we do to our world and to other species. So looking at ourselves as species gives us no doubt about what we know, where we go, and what the result is going to be. Hopefully, we understand what we know before is too late.

I love your comment for many times we fail to see the cause, but we see the effect. For example, we don't see the wind, but we see the effect it creates on us. We don't see the flavoring materials, but we know they are there because we sense their flavor. Sometimes, seeing the effect is far easier than seeing the cause.

Not to add any more depth than has been implied in this great post, but, yeah that but thing, if we see self awareness as remote situationally, then free will would also be remote. Within leadership engagement, the premise of free will is what drives us that we can change things. Leaders need, through trial and error, to develop their communication skills via the "footprint" they leave, or become self aware of their impact. Food for thought:)

Harvey Lloyd- your insights are deep. In seeking self-awareness a leader may be in a better position to understand followers. That is a solid concept of emotional intelligence. But, as you said and as I indicated in my previous response as well as in the buzz, this understanding might be a remote possibility. This is how I see it. The other approach is learning by trial and error and this way a leader may evaluate id she/he is impacting purposefully her/his environment. I also this also help the leader understand self better.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

This is again Harvey Lloyd. I may add that complexity is experienced with many human beings and, if so, cause and effect are not proportionate. In complex systems we seek trial and error and we learn from the experience to move on.

Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee while reading over the comments i would think that the self awareness concept would need two distinct definitions. One definition of the internal "life" reflection (self-worth maybe?)and another where we consider our impact on various social/professional situations. Our footprint if you will. The personal self awareness is individual. Where i think in leadership we must constantly reflect upon our engagement motives and how they impacted the flow to conclusion. Did i enter the situation with with or without prejudice? Did i enter with seeking understanding or insuring it didn't go a specific way? Interesting discussions as i watch folks weave in and out of personal and social/professional paradigms of discussion.

I have found that some folks seem to be able to adapt more quickly if they can verbalize cause and effect. For many leaders though cause and effect are mere past representations of learning, with no need to fully understand the cause. Just know what they learned. Cause and effect is useful in understanding future needs but as to settling emotional or self awareness concepts has always eluded me. But like you stated , if it helps a person move on from where they are then maybe it is good. I am still a little sideways on the repressed memory concept when folks need the cause effect model to secure their future. Specifically as it adds to future existential crisis creation.

Great quote my friend Praveen. Thank you

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

#63
Dear Praveen Raj Gullepalli- we certainly need your mind. Your comment reflects a great maturity of thinking. This is a challenging comment. There are two great points in your comment that may raise huge discussions. First point is your writing "I believe self-awareness in general is just that. A growing awareness of one's static and evolving aspects. Sometimes you can be a stranger to your own self depending upon how strong deeper influences are". Stranger to own self- I shall not dispute this for one reason. I experienced this self many times in my life span. Therefore, your definition of self-awareness is understandable and convincing and is in line with the previous comments of Harvey Lloyd The second point is "All external stimuli and corresponding response is but a superficial facade / coating and a sometimes deliberate and sometimes unconscious expression of the inner self".This is hugely challenging to conventional thinking. I imagine external stimuli as balls hitting our inner selves. Some of us have rubber-like character and the ball bounces back. Others have glass quality inner selves and the balls shatter them into pieces. SO much to think over my friend. You leave my mind aroused.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

The seed of the trouble is fear in the womb dear Tausif Mundrawala. Fear paralyzes and, as you stated, it takes a courageous art to move out of the fear zone. Sometimes, these fears are in the shadow and the person may not notice them. We need to question certain behaviors. For example, if somebody tries to show the world he is a courageous person relentlessly then he might be covering the fear residing in his shadow. It is a long journey my friend.

If we can place some validity within epigenetics then we can determine that the child is influenced by the mother and father paradigm during the pregnancy. More importantly is what we reinforce within the first seven years when the child expresses the genetics given. The key for me is capabilities to sort through life. We seem to be protecting children these days in lieu of training them to measure, adjust and compensate for real life settings. We can't plan for every issue, but we can be ready mentally for all possibilities. Great thoughts

Some valid points as we look at the childhood experiences. If we take a child that grows up in a very closed system (Conservitive, lets call it.) and a child that is reared in a very open system (Liberal) then when they meet entropy happens. The validation of ones own paradigms cant be met within such a meeting. We need another mechanism for the two to create success. They can seperate into identity groups or they can become self aware that each childhood experience developed a slightly different world view. Self awareness is the concept that in our adult life we reconcile what the child developed. Each individaul having value in themselves we can honor that value through developing the best of success that all can find their identity within. This is a two edged sword. Making room for others within policy that we all must adapt individually. The failure within ectropy comes with consequences. The larger question is, am i responsible for my worldview, adaptation within policy. Or is it that the rest of society needs to change their worldview/policy? A little Frued goes a long way in self awareness.

I agree each of us carries away from each cycle what we learned from others. This is either a wisdom or distracting experience. The best we can do is attempt to be self aware with each encounter and influence in such a way that adds wisdom to others. Sometimes, time and people distract us from this core principal. The footprint we leave in someone’s else’s sand is the self awareness journey towards wisdom. If we exclude others from self awareness understanding then it is merely a measure of my own wants and needs.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Very-well said " When in fact we should see our environment as a fluid ever changing ecosystem of success and failure. With each cycle i am measuring my own footprint (self awareness) within the cycle:. So, dear Harvey Lloyd how about people leaving their footage on the sands of time? Some people leave very temporary footprints of their self-awareness because they ignore the fluid environment in which they live in and blows away their footprints of self-awareness.

#6 Self awareness is our ability to understand the forces at work within personal, social and proffesional paradigms. Self awareness is turning into something else as mentions. The new outcome is directly tied to self worth. My awareness of my own needs and wants are either met or i am not doing something right. Most importantly something is exitinsially broke and i have to fix it. This new paradigm of self awareness and follow your feelings leads us to circular, frustrating self worth analysis. Almost as if we are trapped in the matrix. When in fact we should see our environment as a fluid ever changing ecosystem of success and failure. With each cycle i am measuring my own footprint (self awareness) within the cycle. The cycle is permanent, i am the variable. With each cycle i can self evaluate and become wise from what worked and what did not based on my own inputs. If you go through a cycle of challenge and end up seeing only existincial fault then you will repeat the cycle until you realise your own inputs and their effects. Self awareness.

Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee the topic of self awareness describes the interface of two or more people and how their shadows react to the known and unknown. This used to be an explorative process whereby folks would share information to make the process known to all parties. Information though has become a commodity in the sense of success but also in self worth matrices. We cant anticipate nor know everything as time reveals the future within the present. Self awareness is understanding how i typically interface with the unknown and being able to self evaluate if the understanding is valid within the current paradigm. Do i act within past experience/knowledge or do i seek new knowledge? The former is my automatic response where the latter is one that takes courage to explore. Specifically as it applies to my pride in knowing everything. Self awareness is a state of being where we can meet the future with as much objectivity as we can muster within each situation. This allows full understanding before acting. Without self awareness we drive the car forward while looking through the rear view mirror.

Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris

If something possesses sufficient ectropy (not entropy) it can withstand the test of time. So, the psychological patterns that form inside ourselves, as they are often constantly re-enforced through the early childhood, they tend to crystallize swiftly and end up creating high ectropy structures inside the psyche. These are then easily observable from the right standpoint, should we care to look. There is nothing hidden under the sun, even if others don't see it...

Great comment dear Harvey Lloyd. I paused on your writing "Thereby indirectly attaining a self awareness state if knowing what one is conscious". This is precisely the point that percolates in my mind. Are we conscious of the unconscious? Are we aware of what happened while we were residing in our mom's wombs and what we experienced while there? Are we aware of those little things that we experienced, but grew with time to guide us? I am referring to Carl Jung and the shadow inside us. I hope that both our friends would share their thoughts as well.

Franci 🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador

Self-awareness changes with each chapter of our life. As humans, I don't believe we can keep up with ourselves in an ever-changing world. Inner and outside forces impact us without us even realizing it. We can not step twice in the same river as quoted by Heraclitus. We are always in a state of flux and as babies, there may be an impact but do we understand it.

Self awareness is currently undergoing a paradigm shift in the name of finding purpose in life, love and our jobs. I agree with Pascal that no one can attain 100% of awareness of the self but what most people are currently doing is looking at their feelings and matching their character with what fulfilled them and gives them purpose in life. Thereby indirectly attaining a self awareness state if knowing what one is conscious of and wants in life! Beautiful read dear Dr. Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
