    Do you know what your blind spots are and how did do you discover them?

    Most of the times people around us know what we are doing wrong in some cases but may not want to convey them to us. But everyone does have their blind spots like B.O or a strange laugh or something a little awkward on the social front. I've known some of mine but may be there are more...

    I have a blind spot wider than 180 degrees centered around the back of my head. I discovered this in my youth when I woke and couldn't see my pillow.

    Oh... just read the extra details. I have just one "blind spot". It seems I think I am funnier than I really am.

    I have no blind spot as I see through the eyes of God and God's Holy Spirit.

    Everybody has a blind spot in the iris.

    As far as personaility - the blind spot is to ignore other's reactions to your faux pas - your ego 'blinds' your from your own faults.

    BTW - the things you hate in others is the unacknowledged thing you despise in yourself.

    My biggest blind spot is how differently I'm perceived by others when they first meet me, and how this first impression is in conflict with what I'm really like. For some people this paradox in me is completely jarring, while others seem drawn to it. There doesn't ever seem to be any middle ground. My blindness to it has certainly caused a few problems in the past.

    The way I easiest find my blind spots is through being married.  My husband can act as a "trigger" to draw things up out of me I didn't know were there  For example, whenever I came home and saw dishes in the sink, I'd get really angry.  Dishes in the sink had never made me THAT angry before--what's the deal?  I had a blind spot of repressed anger due to a childhood experience and belief--I wrote a Hub about it if you are interested.  .It is good to know our blind spots but its not always fun.  :-)
