Explaining the Johari Window

The model consists of a foursquare grid. Each person is represented by their own four-quadrants. Each of these contains and represents personal information, like feelings and motivation, and shows if the information is known or not known.

  • Quadrant 1: Open Area. What is known by the person about him/herself and is also known by others.
  • Quadrant 2: Blind Area. What is unknown by the person about him/herself but which can be seen by others. (for example, feelings of incompetence, rejection)
  • Quadrant 3: Hidden or Avoided Area. What the person knows about him/herself that others don't know.
  • Quadrant 4: Unknown Area. What is unknown by the person about him/herself and also unknown by others.
