Johari Window

by for .  

The Johari window is a technique that helps people better understand their relationship with themselves and others. In the exercise, someone picks a number of adjectives from a list, choosing ones they feel describe their own personality. The subject's peers then get the same list, and each picks an equal number of adjectives that describe the subject. These adjectives are then inserted into a two-by-two grid of four cells See Wikipedia : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johari_window


The participant can use adjectives like these as possible descriptions in the Johari window.[6]
