it's only words...

Call me self-obsessed, but I saw this over at Michael's blog and I wondered what you lot would say about me.... it's a site that let's you create your own Johari Window.

As wikipedia says:

"A Johari window is a metaphorical tool intended to help people better understand their interpersonal communication and relationships....Terms selected only by the participant, but not by any of their peers, are placed into the Fa├žade quadrant, representing information about the participant of which their peers are unaware. It is then up to the participant whether or not to disclose this information.

Terms that are not selected by the participant but only by their peers are placed into the Blind Spot quadrant. These represent information of which the participant is not aware, but others are, and they can decide whether and how to inform the individual about these "blind spots".

Terms which were not selected by either the participant or their peers remain in the Unknown quadrant, representing the participant's behaviors or motives which were not recognized by anyone participating. This may be because they do not apply, or because there is collective ignorance of the existence of that trait."

I thought it might be an interesting exercise to see what you guys have made of me from what I write here. All you have to do is to look at the list of words, and choose the words that you reckon describe me best ("smartarse" sadly isn't there)

Click here and let me have it.

I'd be more than happy to reciprocate too, if you choose to set one up.

I just thought it might be interesting, is all.
