|03:50 am - I have clay feet too|
Gakked from asa_brarian:
I've seen quite a few folks on my Friends list doing the Johari Window meme, but only asa_brarian also has a Nohari Window, so she gets the "credit" for passing along this meme.
Since I have no problem acknowledging that I have faults -- and quite a few of them -- I'll be doing BOTH types, not just the complimentary one.
Please respond honestly to both. Anonymous answers are perfectly acceptable, if responders feel more comfortable with that. (You might need to type Anon for the form to accept an anonymous answer -- not sure about that though . . . )
Shower me with compliments
Toss bricks at me

If I get a fair number of answers (more than just a few) I may do a follow-up post with the results.

I answered your Johari questions first. :)
I'm not brave enough to post the Nohari window in my own LJ right now. Maybe I'd have a thicker skin if things were less FUBAR. But bravo to you for wanting to know. I'm not answering this one. I'd only do it if I gave you the same opportunity to be critical. Can't say I'm too familiar with your less desirable traits anyway.
Thanks for being so complimentary.
The Nohari stuff is important, IMO, because it shows me where I have to work harder, especially if others see faults in me that I don't even realize I have.

Well, you could ask certain folks you know (I'm sure you know who I mean) -- I'm sure they could give you an earful. :P
I have an educated guess who you might mean.
But I don't like to get these things secondhand.
The Nohari stuff IS important. It's good that you recognize this. I'm just not feeling brave enough right to to get into it on my end of things. Glad you can though. Come to think of it, I didn't include brave on your Johari and probably should have.

Flattery will get you everywhere. :)
I don't tend to think of myself as being brave at all -- I think I'm pretty darn mousy. And I tend to be something of a doormat too.
It's nice to think that someone considers me brave though. :D
I am Tigress -- hear me ROAR!!!
~~ mews ~~
Make that Tigress cub.
IMHO, there are different kinds of brave. Being willing to examine your entire self, faults included, is brave.
But I understand the mousy doormat feeling all too well. *sigh*

Thanks for saying that.
My Catholic upbringing is an advantage here -- I was taught to constantly try to be aware of my own failings, whether great or small, and to constantly strive to become a better, kinder and more compassionate human being. I still maintain that as a daily discipline even though I now self-identify as pagan.
Yeah I grew up Catholic too. Unfortunately it was the self flogging rather than the self aware form of Catholic. They may look similar on the surface but one is useful and constructive and the other is toxic. I am trying to be self aware sans toxicity but old habits can die hard.
I'm not sure how I identify now. Certainly not as a Catholic. I am loosely affiliated with Unitarian Universalism and if I go to any church it tends to be them. I like basic concepts in earth based spirituality and have pagan friends but wouldn't exactly describe myself as pagan either. There's also a touch of secular humanism in the mix (see UU).
