Self Awareness Worksheet
Who I am?
Our Self-Awareness worksheet (Who am I?) is the first worksheet in a series of worksheets we use for Self Discovery and Goal Setting. This Self-Awareness worksheet focuses on discovering “Who am I?” It is an all-encompassing worksheet that addresses talents, qualities, values, perception, and self-reflection. The other worksheets in the series focus on a specific aspect of self-Discovery.
The other Self Discovery Workshops/worksheets in the series include:
- Personal Attributes
- Values and Principles
- Emotional Awareness
- Tendencies and Habits
- Needs Assessment
Self-Awareness happens through reflection. You can have numerous experiences in your life, but still lack self-awareness. You need to take the time to step outside of your experiences and reflect on them. The key areas for self-awareness include our personality traits, personal values, emotions, habits, and the psychological needs that motivate our behaviors.
Self-awareness and/or Self Discovery is about knowing and understanding:
- · your beliefs and principles
- · What you value and what is important to you
- · what motivates you
- · your own emotions
- · your thinking patterns
- · your tendencies to react to certain situations
- · what you want out of life
