When I found out about the assignment my first thought was “Why?” I dread talking or writing about myself. I am an introvert and self-disclosure is very difficult for me. However, I’m glad I had to do it because it was a good way to re-evaluate myself. After completing the online assessments and talking with friends and relatives I was able to complete my Johari Window filling the four quadrants; open, blind, hidden and unknown.
My introvert personality makes me come across as unattached, serious even conceited at times without me realizing it. But those who know me know that I am not like that at all. I understand how I can be perceived as unattached and serious because I am a private person unless I know you and trust you I don’t like sharing my innermost thoughts and feelings. I definitely take my time to warm up to people. That’s probably the reason way I only have a few friends and why I’m okay with it. I have a healthy self-esteem and confidence in myself but I am definitely not conceited on the contrary I believe I am modest. I don’t to brag about my accomplishments or aptitudes I prefer to let my actions speak for themselves. I’m very respectful of people’s personal space because I want my personal space to be respected as well.
My close friends and relatives describe my as happy, kind and caring. I am a happy-positive person; in difficult situations I tend to seek practical solutions hoping for the best possible outcome instead of drowning myself on the negative. I care for those around me I try to see both sides of a situation and put myself in people’s shoes to understand them better and understand why they acted a certain way. I don’t like seeing anyone down or in trouble if I can do something to help I don’t hesitate in helping. My sisters and my mom have said that when they need a favor they come to me first because they know I will help them and do it ASAP too.
Although I have a healthy self-esteem sometimes I can’t help but feel self-conscious especially when it comes to my physical appearance I don’t always feel beautiful. I’m also scared of losing my love ones just the thought of it drives me crazy. Other times I’m afraid of failure of not being able to reach my goals, afraid of letting people down. I try my best to keep all of my insecurities to myself, to only express my love for those close to my heart since life can be short and unexpected, that I cannot live my life trying to fulfill other people’s expectations ‘cause otherwise I wouldn’t be living and that the only real failure in life is the failure to try.
Currently my most important goal is to finish my associate’s degree and move on to obtaining my bachelors. My motivation for continuing my education is to improve my chances at better job opportunities. I hope for a better life for me and my family monetarily and emotionally speaking. I want to provide my kids a secure and happy environment, for them to have a happy childhood and become happy successful men.
To open myself wasn’t easy but I’m glad I did it. I was able to reflect on my personality and my life in general. Doing some self-exploration is always good. Open…
