Our Strengths and Weaknesses
It is easy to describe other people. It seems that we know others better than we know ourselves. Describing your own self is a more difficult task than describing others. One of which is that recognizing your strengths and weaknesses.
Recognizing Our Strengths and Weaknesses
Is it really important that you can identify your strengths and weaknesses? I do believe so. Strength refers to your strong points of both physical, mental traits, potentials, talents, skills and qualities. On the other hand, weakness refers to negative traits or failures to meet what is desirable for skills and character formation.
Personality windows help you understand yourself even more. These are the following aspects:
1. The things that you know about yourself.
2. Things that others know about you.
3. Things that know about you but you do not know
4. Things you know others know about yourself.
When you examine your personality windows, you will discover that there are things you know about yourself which are also known to others, things only others know about yourself but which you do not know, and things that only yourself know.
The first thing you must do upon knowing your strengths is to identify the opportunities related to them. If for example one of your strengths is singing, the feasible opportunity for you is to become a singer or a voice trainer. So you need to keep track with your strengths because it will help and guide you. On the other hand, identifying your weakness will prevent threats on your life once you make ways to enhance it. Assuming that your weakness is that you have a very slow work speed, and you won’t improve, you will have little outputs. Performance is affected and has a tendency to be deprived from promotions or even losing a job.
Keeping up your strengths and focusing on the opportunities describe you as a good decision maker. It is also holds true if you do your best enhancing your weaknesses to prevent threat tendencies.
