Evaluating Myself

Improved Essays
Self awareness is key when evaluating yourself. Self awareness is important for finding out things about yourself that you might not have realized before. People often tell themselves lies about how they really are. This is called being “in denial”. This often causes many people not to learn how to improve themselves. JROTC teaches kids how to care about themselves and self evaluating. Some kids have already started or done evaluating themselves. Evaluating myself, I see that I am intelligent kid. I often get distracted by other people, things, and basic life. When I get distracted I forget about the thing I was doing. This applies to my grade most of the time. My parents have to remind me of what I'm supposed to complete.Another thing I have found out is that I'm able to not work so hard, but still have a decent grade. I have also …show more content…
I lie a lot when asked about things when I am feeling guilty. On the other hand I tell the truth sometimes when I am feeling not as guilty about the situation. I also give up on things quickly when they get too difficult. A key example is when I’m exercising and it gets too hard to accomplish. I tend to give up. My parents often help me by encouraging me to keep going. Another fact is rather or not I think about the consequences about what might happen if I crumble under pressure.
Overall I perceive myself as being a normal kid in all aspects of life except intelligence. Most of the time people do not have self awareness. In this case others have to tell them how they really are. I used to being denial about how I really am, but now I’m starting to find out things about myself everyday.Self awareness can help people detect flaws and also find out good traits that they have. Which can lead to better confidence and better performance either in school, at work, or life in general I hope that I can encourage others to have self

    The factors of the decline in asking questions is the fear of what others will think, the lack of a reward system for questions, and the increase in technology. A big reason on why people are holding back their questions is because of the fear of looking weak, ignorant, or unsure. It is very common for people today to keep their questions to themselves because they will feel judged and…

    That is the big question. Many people realize they do not talk about the important things with their partners, but they do not know how to fix the problem. I believe it takes self-work to start talking about some of the things that happened to them. They must address that it is a problem and figure out how to fix it, otherwise it will stay buried and will continue being a problem. On the other hand, sometimes, the reason why people have bad communication is because they do not have enough confidence to say what they want and need.…

    I have always been quiet in class and have not participated near as much as I should have just because of my lack of confidence in myself and in my work. While working through depression with professionals I somewhat gain my confidence back. Now I feel that as I learn how to be a better student I can grow in confidence and be able to participate more fully in classes and in other activities. This is my past and these are the things that I would like to improve on. Although my past was hard I know that with the help of our Lord all things can be overcome and I have started to overcome some of the big trials in my life.…

    I wish I was more physically stronger, so I can defend myself in case I ever get attacked out of nowhere one day. I tend to be very quiet when talking to people, and it’s either they can’t hear me most of the time, or I have a hard time speaking to them. I’m trying to overcome it, but it’s a very difficult process for me. I was huge procrastinator ever since I started Kindergarten. My motto was “Have fun and do work later.” I’m slowly overcoming…

    Another weakness is the fact that I tend to get bored easily. I often have a short attention span; I think this comes from being Type A personality. This affects all part of my life, not just my professional life. How I handle it in my personal life is that I try to break down larger mundane tasks into smaller more obtainable tasks first. This concept can also be applied to my professional life and leadership to help prevent me from getting bored and not accomplishing something.…

    There are plenty of things that actually go into play inside and outside of school when it comes to people’s growth of mind. I am sure praising someone may help get them back on track or feel some type of appreciation nut in all reality it all depends on the learner themselves. Kohn says, “A substantial research literature has shown that the kids typically end up less interested in whatever they were rewarded or praised for doing, because now their goal is just to get the reward or praise.” Most of the time we want something to happen or hope for something great to happen but we usually forget Roam was not built in a day. Everything takes time, hard work, and effort. We all tend to forget the most beautiful art takes the most time and our mind is a piece of art and we are always in the process of creating our own master…

    However, this pessimism needs to be well managed, lest it turns into paranoia. It is also a problem when it comes to group work as some people may feel offended when I overly point out imperfections in their opinions and ideas. Another weakness is communication. I am able to absorb and understand information quite readily but I face difficulty when it comes to communicating such information to my peers. Many times it seems as though we are on a different wavelength and it is vexing for both parties as I cannot express what I want to say and the other party cannot understand what I am trying to say.…

    Basically, having a Q&A segment ensures that the person lecturing has reached a level of expertise on the topic at hand. There were several instances where I found such a segment to be helpful to prepare for. Personally, when I presented a topic as an assignment, I failed to give answers to the questions the audience had because I was more nervous and less prepared for the first presentation. Most of the students did a well job in answering the questions while some struggled. Moreover, some students were able to answer the questions, but with the wrong terminology.…

    Also, I used to feel guilty if I didn’t do something productive at any given time, but I don’t feel as much guilty as I used to. Through the class, I learned to talk back to my introjections, and became more aware of where my sense of guild and shame was coming from. I believe that getting rid of my introjections is an essential part of becoming an independent individual, and I feel determined to do…
