I describe myself as an individual that is never ignorant about getting goals achieved. To benchmark this view, I have utilized the Johari strategy (and the adjective list) to solicit and receive feedback from 4 acquaintances across different spheres of my life. I have gained a first and account of how others see me and to a large extent their opinions reinforce my already held belief in my ability to succeed despite the odds I face. In relation to the incident discussed above, over 60% of my respondents described me as intelligent, imaginative, ambitious and confident. Considering the fact that the above incident has never been discussed with any of my respondents I find the tool kit of very much relevance.However some responses revealed some flaws I was unconscious of (and largely indifferent towards, before the exercise). It was a wake-up call being described as dreamy, critical, lazy, stubborn and over-confident. Indeed I have known myself to be laid back, introverted, self conscious and relentless at certain times but I had no idea some of these attitudes were being perceived in such negative light.What are the implications for future career or personal development .Despite the fact that I am a gifted individual, I need to avoid the 11th hour approach to tasks and channel some of my mental energy into practical activities in a timely fashion. Confidence is a positive trait but it is important curtail any outward projections of pride as it could hamper my progress in future. In summary, determination, courage, self-esteem are keys to success, in all circumstances however, I need to remain humble and maintain a modest ego for my interpersonal relationships to thrive.
