1. Write 400 words for the following:
Using the Johari window model of the four selves, in a multi-paragraph essay self-assess your
own level of self-awareness and then suggest ways by which you could increase your open self
and reduce your blind and unknown self, then without being specific, justify the type of
information you prefer to keep hidden. Have an introduction, body, and a conclusion to your
essay, then to the degree you can with your computer, include a shell of a Johari window, most
likely through creating a text box (or however your computer will allow you to create a four quadrant Johari window) representative of your self-awareness with those you know, labeling the
four quadrants by name [I’m not asking you to specifically discuss the information that might be
found in these quadrants; just reflect the size of the four windows generalizing what you disclose
of yourself to those you regularly relate to interpersonally])
