Tayo Elnathan discusses self awareness with trusted friend Kemi Aina in this episode of the Tayo Elnathan show.
What is self awareness?
Self awareness is knowing who you are so you can be at peace with yourself. The science and ability to see yourself just the way you are.
Self-awareness theory is based on the idea that you are not your thoughts, but the entity observing your thoughts; you are the thinker, separate and apart from your thoughts (Duval & Wicklund, 1972).
We can go about our day without giving our inner self any extra thought, merely thinking and feeling and acting as we will; however, we also can focus our attention on that inner self, an ability that Duval and Wicklund (1972) termed “self-evaluation.”
