What is Introspection

Introspection is the process of observing and examining your thoughts and emotions, and being present to the thoughts or emotions that arise.

Introspection allows you to reflect on your past experiences and behaviors, assess your current mental state, and gain a deeper understanding of your inner self.

Even while it may appear complicated, it is a process that many of us go through without even recognizing it.

Settle Calm Environment

The golden rule of any introspection session is that mood and space matter. It’s usually because of a recency effect, a cognitive bias in which those ideas, or arguments that came last are remembered more clearly than those that came first. For example, imagine that you did a bunch of preparation tests and failed. Then you decided to reflect on it, you were in a terrible mood and had failed tests lying around. In a such case, only negative thoughts will come to mind.

Journaling or free writing allows you to express your feelings and emotions and write about your personal and professional experiences. Once everything that was in your brain is on paper, you can reflect on what you wrote to identify patterns and gain clarity about your life.

Johari Window

The Johari window is a framework for understanding your relationship with yourself and others. Think of it as a way to look at what we know about ourselves and what others know about us. It's like a window with four parts:

  1. Things everyone knows.
  2. Things others see, but you don't.
  3. Things you keep secret.
  4. Mystery things.

Ask Yourself Questions

If you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start to better understand your inner self and uncover your motivation in life, writing down pre-planned questions can help. Having pre-planned questions will also allow you to easily incorporate self-reflection into your daily routine.

Also, Tasha Eurich’s research proved that “Why” questions trap us in our past, while “what” questions help us create a better future.
