Johari Window


Stolen shamelessly from the one, the only, let's give it up for.... Mr. Fabulous.

The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.

I've started by picking the five or six words that I feel best describe me, now you get to clicky on the link below and then clicky on the words you think best describe The Wrathful One.

I really love this Johari test. I also did the Nohari version (the negative things) and found it to be very humbling. Hehe. But it's interesting to see how you see yourself compared to those who are closest to you (and should know better).

Clicked and ripped.

There wasn't a cold option. I'd have clicked it if I could.

Or snow shovelling for that matter,

GW - Shivering wasn't there either. Obviously not written by a Canandian in March.

TC - Nope. That's a good friend on the right and her daughter on the left. I'm the photographer. It's one of my favourite shots, taken inside a relatively new art gallery/museum. Originally posted on Oct 22/05.

Thanks for the input, guys! (she said before checking to see what they'd checked... uh-oh!)

What I always don't get about the Johari window is the area where you don't know about it and neither does anyone else. If you have a personality trait and no one knows about it, does it still exist?

Hawkowl - And even more puzzling, if you only exhibit that trait in the forest and there's no man to make fun of you, does it exist? Oh the questions we need to ponder.
