Self Awareness
What, Why, How… Can we trust?

What Is Self-Awareness?

Ability to assess one’s personality, behaviors & skills accurately

  • Examples
  • Self-subordinate agreement (Church, J of ApplPsy, 1997)
    • Student-teacher agreement on judgments of performance on presentations (Radhakrishnan, in progress)
      • Own vs. peer presentations
      • Practice vs. final presentation
    • Accuracy of predicted judgments v. actual performance on exams (Radhakrishnan et al., 1996; 2000)

What Self Awareness is NOT

  • Self-monitoring
  • – Extent to which you monitor, regulate &/or control behavior/appearance in social situations
    • Low self-monitors behave according to their own inner states whereas high monitors behave according to the social situation
  • – E.g., I may deceive people by being friendly when I really dislike them

Self-Monitoring vs. Self-Awareness

Knowing oneself accurately (self-awareness) is different from being able to change, monitor, or regulate behaviors in the presence of others (self- monitoring)

Self-awareness and self-monitoring may be related to each other
