Johari Window

Back in August 2006, I posted this blog on myspace about My Johari Window.

In case you don't want to jump over to myspace, here's a recap: The Johari Windows was invented by Luft and Ingham in the 1950s, as a model for mapping personality awareness.  Basically, there is a fixed listing of adjectives from which you select 5 or 6 words to describe yourself.  You then get your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list.  The results is a grid of overlap and differences which you could see how other people see you versus how you see yourself.

If you know me, please contribute to my Johari Window here.  You could also see the results...  plus, if you want you could set one up for yourself.
