Your Blind Spots

Do You Know Your Emotional Blind Spots?

Identifying your own blind spots is an exercise in paradox, because if you're aware of a problem, it doesn't count. It's like tracking the wind: You can't observe the thing itself, only its effects. The tracks that a blind spot leaves are repetitive experiences that seem inexplicable, the things that make you exclaim, Why does this always happen to me? For example:

1. You keep having the same relationship with different people.
2. Your luck never changes.
3. People consistently describe you in a way that doesn't fit your self-image.


Complete the following sentences as accurately as you can:

"People are always telling me that I'm..."
"I get a lot of compliments about..."
"When my friends or family members are angry with me, they say that..."
"People often thank me for..."

If you heartily agree with all the information that pops up in response to these phrases, you've simply reinforced an accurate self-concept by recalling times when others have validated your perceptions. But if any of the descriptions seem strange, incongruous, or flat-out false, consider the possibility that your image of yourself may not be accurate—and almost certainly doesn't correspond to what other people perceive.

When completing the sentences above consider what people have said about you in real life who have actually met you. You may wish to consider what people have said about you online as well, but remember that some people like to troll and trolls will say anything to get a reaction.

Really?


We're so out of stuff to talk about we're using Oprah quizzes.

You try reaps, but time to call it a day.

It's not a quiz...

All you have to do is finish the sentences.

I am pretty introvert, more introvert than the other way around but I am not shy or quiet. I make people have fun. The blind spot I can think of now is that I jump into something when two persons talks, not very often. I am aware of it after I have spoken.

"People are always telling me that I'm..." Too liberal with my ketchup appliance.
"I get a lot of compliments about..." My beef tenderloin. Not my penis, talking about cooking.
"When my friends or family members are angry with me, they say that..." My cooking sucks.
"People often thank me for..." My beef tenderloin.

I'm hungry.

People always tell me that I look young for my age (once they know how old I am that is)

I do get compliment about how I dress but that's only once or twice a week so not often.

I don't have family except for my daughter and people don't generally get angry with me and if they do they don't let me know.

People often thank me for sex.
