Here’s the thing about self awareness. If you are pretty self aware, you likely are in good shape: if you’re not, you likely need to work on it but are not aware that you need to do so. Beginning to think empathetically about those around you (Something un self aware folks often lack) is an essential step in this direction. So, as a self test, you can spend some time reflecting on how you interact with folks and how they appear to perceive you. What do they care about? Have your framed your conversation in a way that communicates reasonable care? Do you know what your foibles are and have you figured out a way to manage them?
