Things Learned in this Class:
I learned that sometimes self-awareness may be unpopular from the article by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic. Many self-help advisors want to improve self-esteem rather than self-knowledge and urge people to ignore negative thoughts, in particular about themselves.

When I get emotional it is very hard for me to stay flexible. I tend to shut down and lose control. I do not have active listening skills. My mind tends to wonder off during conversations with certain people. This class helped me to understand some of the many problems I’m facing.

My answers are going to be based on a coworker. I learned that people really do care and have my best interest in mind. Not everyone is looking to see what they can get out of me. I learned that my coworker does things for others without expecting anything in return. I tried to do things for her but she declined my offer. I also learned that my coworker lost her house when she got laid off but she never talks about it. She only told me that it will be replaced by God in his time not ours....
