self-awareness

In scary psychological terms…

“Self-awareness is a psychological state in which people are aware of their traits, feelings and behaviour. Alternately, it can be defined as the realization of oneself as an individual entity.”

-Crisp & Turner, 2010

But the reason for this post is to peak your interest in the area, so don’t panic yet 🙂

Essentially, what is the first “step” to self-awareness?
Understanding that you, yourself, are a unique, individual being.

Or…can you recognize yourself in a mirror?

Here’s a fun video about elephants to make my point for me!
