Day 7: Stereotype Yourself. Write It.

Most people consider themselves self-aware. But researchers have found that only about 10-15% of people actually are! 

In this exercise, write the stereotype you fall into. How others may see you. Make a caricature out of yourself. This will do a couple of things…. First, it’ll help you not take yourself too seriously. And second, on the other hand beginning to see yourself through others’ eyes can go a long way to self-awareness and the impact that you have on those around you. Gaining an understanding of this can much to improve your relationships and move you towards your goals. 

Take out your Who Are We journal and write…. 

  • Other’s see me as impulsive, boring, hardworking, lazy…whatever it might be. 
  • My partner often is upset that I/When I … don’t listen/Don’t communicate/Complain. 
  • If there was a show about my life, what would it be called?
  • Write a time where you were misunderstood….
  • Consider what you’ve written? Are there any stereotypes or people that you’ve known that could also be described as the above?

The way other people see you can have so much to do with your success in career, relationships, and in your own satisfaction. Congratulations on taking a big step in becoming more self-aware…

BA in Psychology and MBA from Kent State. ENTJ Myers/Briggs and my love language is acts of service. However, I don’t think any of those things should provoke you to read my blog. Hmmm. I want to talk about things we all think about but, can’t freely talk about.
Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
