The Benefits of Self Awareness

It involves three elements to get you where you want to go:

  • Introspection: the process of attempting to directly access one’s own internal psychological processes, judgments, perceptions.
  • Self-reflection: the examination, contemplation, and analysis of one’s thoughts, feelings, and actions.
  • Insight: the clear discernment of a solution to a problem. It’s the result of self-reflection and introspection.
