II. The Known Self: What you know about yourself and what others know about you. These are qualities and characteristics about yourself that you show to others. This is the tip of the iceberg, qualities, and characteristics that you are willing to let everyone see.
III. The Hidden Self: What you know about yourself that you do not readily share with others. These are qualities and characteristics that you keep to yourself or only share with those with whom you feel “safe”. Typically, these qualities and characteristics are those you developed because of some experience.
IV. The Blind Self: These are qualities and characteristics that others use to define or describe you that you are unaware of. You will need to ask others, such as your family and friends, what characteristics or qualities they see in you that you are not aware of.
V. The Unknown Self: Knowledge neither you nor others have about you because of your lack of experience. Use this page to describe the type of person you aspire to be in the different facets of your future life. Remember to use positive self-fulfilling prophecy statements.
