Johari Crazy

For the last two weeks, our Human Behavior in Organizations (HBO) had us talk about "authentic leadership" and we had three cases to discuss this matter. The last activity had us create our Johari Window, a tool to see where our vision of ourselves intersect with our external relationships. So, you could imagine people sending emails to everyone asking them to fill-out his or her Johari Window.

Here's how my Johari Window looks like:

Arena

(known to self and others)

clever, confident, idealistic, intelligent, knowledgeable, witty

Blind Spot

(known only to others)

able, accepting, adaptable, brave, calm, caring, cheerful, complex, dependable, dignified, energetic, extroverted, friendly, giving, helpful, independent, ingenious, introverted, kind, logical, loving, mature, modest, nervous, observant, organised, patient, quiet, reflective, relaxed, religious, responsive, searching, self-assertive, sensible, sentimental, trustworthy, warm, wise

Fa├žade

(known only to self)

Unknown

(known to nobody)

bold, happy, powerful, proud, self-conscious, shy, silly, spontaneous, sympathetic, tense


It seems that people agree with me that I'm confident, knowledgeable and witty and I'm pleased that people think I'm accepting, adaptable, friendly, helpful and independent.

Now, I wonder: What would people would put in my Nohari Window?
