It's been a month after I set up my Johari window. Actually, I first heard of this 4-window pscyhology concept back in Grade 6 through my religion teacher. And I've had friends who asked me to fill up their own windows. I thought it was cool but I never set up my own. I hated the way some would "force" you to fill up their windows even to the point of spamming the Friendster Bulletin Board about it. But again, I was required to make one for myself because of PBBFG3. Here's my attempt to psychoanalyze myself, haha!

Apparently, unlike the others, I don't have any dominant trait. My top traits are:
1. friendly (44%) - it always surprises me whenever people think I'm friendly. Well, I know that to a certain degree, I am indeed friendly enough, I just didn't think I was friendly enough to be described as friendly. Besides, I grew up always having impressions of being a snub.
2. intelligent (34%) - well, despite my failing grades, I am still intelligent, haha! =p I actually prefer to consider myself wise (24%).
3. knowledgeable (34%) - Encarta Dictionary says this means knowing a great deal: possessing or showing a great deal of knowledge, awareness, or intelligence. "Intelligent" is defined as mentally able: having intelligence, especially to a highly developed degree; sensible or rational: showing or resulting from an ability to think and understand things clearly and logically. I can't differentiate 'knowledgeable' and 'intelligent' myself. But I think it's safe to say that these 2 traits split some votes, hehe.
4. sensible (34%) - different, but fairly similar to intelligent and knowledgeable.
5. organised (31%) - I admit that I do have the tendency to be organized and I blame it on my very mild case of OC Disorder. But the thing is, I also have an equal tendency to be disorganized. And Mama would so agree -- especially when it comes to keeping my room in order, haha!
6. trustworthy (31%) - I'm most flattered by this, hehe. Because trust is something that cannot be solicited or forced. It must be gained.

I consider myself as helpful (10%) but I guess other people see it as being dependable (27%). Halos pareho lang to, diba? Funny how some people consider me as self-assertive (13%) and confident (10%). I checked who ticked these traits, they were the people closest to me -- they do know me well. I think that the Blind Spot window should have 2 panels -- 'other people' should be classified into 2: close friends and mere acquaintances. Hehe, wala lang. I just feel that people who've seen you through the good and bad times provide better insights on your traits.
