Can Self-Awareness Help In An Interview?

By Gerald Walsh ©

I’m going to take a slightly different approach to my blog this week. Rather than writing 600 - 700 words on a topic, I am going to suggest you watch a short TED talk on self-awareness.

The speaker is Dr. Tasha Euruch, author of Insight: The Surprising Truth About How Others See Us, How We See Ourselves, and Why The Answers Matter More Than We Think. 

I was particularly intrigued by her research which found that 95% of us believe we are self-aware, but only 10-15% actually are.

While watching this video, think about how being more self-aware can help you in job interviews and on the job. Enjoy.
