How can we understand ourselves better than before?
So many times it is easy to point out others' weakness and strength while we can't see ourselves who we are! Somehow, understanding others also gives us life lessons if we are willing to learn but understanding ourselves gives us better lessons in life how to interact with ourselves and others effectively. So, how can we understand ourselves better than before?
Start writing diary.
Write at least three pages daily anything that comes.
Keep writing for 30 days without reading.
After 30 days read and you will understand yourself better.
That is one of those tough philosophical questions. I believe we should start examining our thoughts in order to understand what and who we really are and what our weaknesses as well as strengths are. Studying our thoughts is a pretty painful experience, but by knowing how we think we can know ourselves better, because a man is as he thinks.
By asking ourselves questions we have never asked or been too scared to ask before
By reading and listening to what others have to say about why they did things the way they did it, you can then try to figure out, if what you do is what you really wanted to do and why you did it that way.
Having somebody like a friend listen to your stories can give you valuable feedback on how that looks to someone else.
All that combined may bring some clarity into the way you see and understand yourself.
Before sleeping recall all days activity that you perform in all day think about right and wrong which you have done in all day. i must say if you think about yourself its really helpful for you to change your personality.
By listening to our conscience more and more rather than to our ego.
Record yourself sleeping. You could learn all kinds of things you'd never know otherwise.
By reminder of my parents toughs and the word of god
without god we are nothing.
You state part of the answer in your question. The people in our social circles give us a better picture of who we are and what we're capable of.
For strengths, one easy way is to determine what hobbies or jobs you enjoy and do most. It's unlikely to be awesome at something you hate doing. The world, just doesn't work that way. Which I suppose, is a good way at finding some weaknesses.
Ultimately though, it depends on what you need this knowledge for. A career path? Entrepreneur ideas? Hobbies? Making more friends? Finding dates? Personal growth, always needs some underlying reason. If there's no reason, then the mind is just getting wrapped up in a trivial matter.
I think what people need to do, is make a personal report card. Listing all your achievements and past accomplishments (minor and big, whatever makes you feel good inside). This, should paint a clear picture of what your capable of.
Writing present goals for the future, will also remind us what strengths we need to accomplish them. We won't know what our weaknesses are, without testing. Which is why, goal setting and this report card is so important.
If someone wants to know weaknesses and strengths in socializing without a third party, keep a journal. Take notes of the effect you have on different people. People you know and strangers you get in conversation with.
At least, those are some of my ideas for understanding ourselves better then before.
