5 Big Discoveries About Personal Effectiveness in 2012

5 Big Discoveries About Personal Effectiveness in 2012 | Personal Growth & Change | Scoop.it

We think we know ourselves best, but more and more evidence is surfacing to the contrary.  Psychologist Timothy Wilson proposes that to really know someone, you have to ask others to evaluate you. It turns out that how you see yourself and how other people see you are only very modestly correlated.

In his book, Strangers to Ourselves, Wilson talks a lot about the adaptive unconscious. He tells us that much of what we do lives in the unconscious and therefore we cannot detect it ourselves. Things like what we think, feel, and want become unnoticeable. Now of course, if you’ve ever practiced mindfulness, or have ever self-reflected, some of the unnoticed start to surface and we gain insights, but more often than not, a lot of information goes unnoticed. http://vsb.li/Ss7N0f
