I decided to stop using the term “self-aware” because it is inaccurate and misleading. I have learned that using the term “self-aware” to describe someone is very misleading. The term “self-aware” is an oxymoron.
I realize this is going to come across as a whine, but I am also very passionate about the subject. I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a new definition for self-aware.
The first definition I came up with was something like “someone who thinks about things as they are, not as they could be.” This is a fairly common term, but it is very inaccurate. For example, I know many young people that have had horrible experiences at school because they thought about the way they were doing that day as they were doing it, rather than what that day was supposed to be like.
Self-awareness is a term that has a lot of different definitions. The main point I was trying to get across is that self-awareness is a state of mind, not a state of action. When we think, we don’t think of how we are thinking, we think about what we are thinking. Self-awareness is a state of mind. A mind that is not self-aware (i.e.
not thinking of itself, is a mind that is not self-aware.
Self-awareness is about seeing the person you are with as “you” and not as the “you” that everyone perceives you to be. It is about having a sense of who you are. A self-aware person sees themselves in the world around them.
The problem with self-awareness is that it is impossible to make yourself self-aware. A person who is not self-aware is not self-aware. A self-aware person is not a person who is self-aware. There is no such thing as “self-aware”. In fact, self-awareness is a state of mind.
self-awareness is the ability to see yourself in the world around you. It is a state of mind. It is possible to have the mind be self-aware. If, however, you are not able to see yourself in the world around you, then it is impossible for you to self-aware. For instance, if you are a person and you can not see yourself in the world around you, then it is impossible for you to be able to self-aware.
The mind is a complicated place. We are only able to see ourselves in the world around us if we are not aware of what we are looking at. If our mind is not aware of what we are looking at, then we cannot have self-awareness. We do not have the ability to self-aware because we are not aware of what we are looking at.
The mind is a complex place too, but being aware of our own thoughts and actions is much more difficult than being aware of what we are looking at. We are only able to be aware of our thoughts and actions if we are aware of what we are thinking. If we are not aware of what we are thinking, then we cannot have self-awareness. We are unable to be aware of our thoughts and actions because we cannot know what we are thinking or doing.
