The Results are In

This was a fun little exercise... When you have to limit yourself to six items, you tend to distill things down - and it's interesting to see what others distill you down to as well. I seem to have quite the blind spot.

Of the 16 people who answered, only 4 of you know me in real life (well, maybe 5 - there was an anonymous in there that I don't know the identity of). The rest of you know me only from my blog(s) and what I write there.

Is the real me and the virtual me the same me? It looks like this might actually be close to the case!

One more note: When visiting the Johari Window, there was also an option to do the Nohari Window - for criticism. I did take a peek and it was downright depressing. I also thought about it. Most people are all too aware of their own weaknesses. There's no need to dwell on that. But they are curiously blind to their strengths. That's where something like the Johari Window can be of some service. Thanks to everyone who took a minute to do it for me!

I didn't participate, but I would have chosen LOVING, WITTY, WISE, CARING, CHEERFUL, and (not on the list) ADVENTUROUS.

'Cause you are, my Dear. You truly are.

Warning to all - don't do Nohari Window. It has backfired on a couple of people including me.

We thought if people entered their selections as Anonymous it would be fun and nobody would get hurt. Not so. Stay away from it.

Johari on the other hand is quite fun. Sayre, nobody picked introverted and quiet for you, except you. Interesting. You obviously present yourself otherwise.
