This is my end of year grade 12 culminating self protariate. The project was to create two self portraits but to have them on one page. Initially, I did not expect myself to finish before school ended due to how long it took me to complete it last year. But by reflecting on what happened last year with my lack of time I was able to change my techniques up to fit the time span.
I got a 39 within UCLA Loneliness Scale on the textbook and I was surprised with my result because I did not know that my score has been this higher compared to other men scale which is average of 32. I did not feel any anxiety and fear when I took this scale in the textbook because I feel very confident with myself and relationships with other people. I always trying to respect other people during the conversations nor hanging out with them during a free time because they were always respect me as well all the time. Furthermore, I always listen to other people who needs advice because I want to help them with my experiences. Therefore, they could think that other people have hard times just like anybody else and it could happen to be anytime.
Self-Awareness, self-concept and emotional intelligence are effective managerial concepts that will result in leadership success. According to Stanford University, having these soft skills are indispensable traits that good managers should develop to be successful leaders. Managers strive to become aware of who they are, what their values, attitudes, skills, and abilities are. These values drive them to achieve and will eventually result in them become more effective.

In America, our self-image is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects of our daily lives. In an ever-changing world, we are constantly working in the lens of which we believe the world sees us. But is this true of all people? Disparities in self-perception between different groups of people can easily be detected through cultural psychology (Heine, Takemoto, Moskalenko, Lasaleta & Henrich, 2008). Perception, especially self-perception, can vary vastly from one culture to another. One perspective that drove home this idea was the thinking that East Asian’s attempt to place their concern with self-concept in the hands of the people around them, as opposed to some other cultures that can be found to focus more prominently on
As individuals, we tend to formulate both positive and negative opinions of others based on personal experiences and life exposures. These exposures help shape our belief systems and perceptions towards others. Our different perceptions cause us to generate biases and prejudices towards groups that we might not always affiliate with. However, we are often not aware that we stereotype others and regard them in a negative manner. The realization of the concept can be uncomfortable to grasp, which is why we often deny the beliefs all together. It is often believed that therapists have the required knowledge to help different groups of individuals with an open mind, but that is not always the case. As a psychologist in training, I understand that the first step to being culturally competent is to have self-awareness and recognize your own biases and prejudices.
I was very young when I had my first encounter with cultural diversity. At the time I thought I was the only person that had experienced things like this. When I was five years old my family, father, mother, and sister moved from Illinois to California. This didn’t really mean much to me at the time I didn’t remember much about being in Illinois. The first thing I did remember was that it wasn’t cold here. Next was the house it was big. After a couple days there I was enrolled in school, this was the early 60’s East Los Angeles. The school like my neighborhood was all Black/Negro. I felt comfortable. After three months we moved to West Los Angeles. Here was where things would start to change. First my neighborhood, on a block of thirty
To get a feel of how my parents were; my parents strayed away from the Asian stereotype which was that all Asian families live under the authoritarian parenting style (Rathus & Longmir, 2010). Instead, my parents chose to adopt the permissive-indulgent parenting style (Rathus & Longmir, 2010) my parents were really laid back; they did not force me to go down a certain career path, instead, they were supportive of my decision to pursue social service work despite them not knowing what it means to become a social service worker. There were not many rules in the house other than the usual “do not do drugs” or “do not skip school, do well in school” My parents reasoning for adopting this parenting style was because, my parents did not want us to be raised like how they were raised, my parents were scared that If they adopted the authoritative parenting style, that when I got older, I would have some resentment towards them. Currently, I am slowly developing a sense of independence by taking on more responsibilities and thinking for myself rather than letting my parents do
The most challenging areas that what I have learned in this course is to face own weaknesses and think objectively. Self-Awareness is one of fundamental skills that we need in order to express our feelings appropriately and communicate with the others successfully. The first step to strengthen Self-Awareness is to acknowledge emotions. Then the second step is pay attention to the physical reactions that are influenced by the emotions. The third step is to take a deep breath and think objectively and analyze what and why the emotions are occurring. The fourth step is to not to judge the emotions either it is good or bad but pay attentions to the others and consequences of the emotions and reactions. Self-Awareness is Zako’s weakness area and
This part will discuss self-awareness and continuous self-development through analyzing a number of prior researches, then come up with the link of them to support my role as a manager in the future.
For most of my childhood, I lived in the city, mostly surrounded by different cultures other than my own. I was able to experience different languages, celebrations, and yummy food, being a white girl sandwiched between African-American and Hispanic neighbors. While my friends and their
Self-awareness is the capacity for introspection and the ability to recognize oneself as an individual separate from the environment and other individuals.
Starting this assignment I was nervous because I wasn’t sure what my personal philosophy was. It took hours of self reflection for be to discover my counseling philosophy is fairly simple. It’s keeping it real. What does keeping it real mean? To me this means being honest with who I am as a person, translating it into my counseling skills, and most importantly project honesty to my future client’s in an effective manner. While it is important to keep it real with the client, it is important to do it in an empathetic and professional way. There is such thing as keeping it too real, which can lead to a bad counseling relationship, possibly ending in a referral to a new counselor.
Summer of 2016 wasn't made special because I traveled far from home and explored new places, in fact, it was quite the opposite. For three exciting months I worked as a volunteer assistant lifeguard for the Ventura County Junior Lifeguard program. I was recruited to aid professional lifeguards in conducting and supervising one thousand 7 to 17 year olds as they were taught water skills and ocean safety.
“Self-awareness is the first step in creating what you want and mastering your life. Where you focus your attention, your emotions, reactions, personality, and behavior determine where you go in life. Having self-awareness allows you to see where your thoughts and emotions are taking you. It also allows you to take control of your emotions, behavior, and personality so you can make changes you want” (Warmerdam, 2017). I feel that I am more self-aware because of how I tackle many tasks daily. I know my major downfall is poor time management. I did not manage deadlines will nor did I observe to them. I am continuously working on making myself a better person by managing my time well. I have learned that I work well under pressure than I do when the deadline is far away. I remember I was planning my family reunion and my cousin had not arrived with the fish for the first night and all my family was hungry and we were waiting on another fish fryer to arrive. My quick thinking allows us to feed everyone in a record time. I located a few additional fryers and bought local fish and French fries from the area. By the time my cousin arrived all my family was sitting down eating and was grateful that they did not have to continue to wait to eat. I feel I do work better under pressure because I need that extra push.
