Self-awareness is the first component of Emotional intelligence. Which means knowing thyself enough to make the right decision at the right time, not because you see it first, but because you believe it before you see it. It also means having a deep understanding of one’s emotions, strengths, weaknesses, needs, and drives.
People with strong self-awareness are neither overly critical nor unrealistically hopeful, rather, they are honest with themselves and with those around them.
Those with high degree of self-awareness do recognize how their emotions affect their ups and downs.
So, this value – self-awareness Intelligence, can be known from one’s understanding of his or her own values and goals. This births one to know who he or she is, and where s/he is headed to, and why so. For example, a person with awareness intelligence, can, or will be able to stand firmly in turning down any job offer that is tempting financially, but does not fit with his or her principle or long term goals. A person who lacks self-awareness is apt to make decisions that bring on inner turmoil by treading on buried values. Also, a person with this valuable, builds their relationship with meaningfulness and purposefulness; takes their responsibility with sincerity and honesty, regardless of the circumstances.
The decision of a Self-aware person matches with his or her values; consequently, they often work to be energizing.
Such Self knowledge often shows itself in all areas of life, such as financially, emotionally physically, socially and even mentally.
Those who are self-aware will be frank in admitting their failures in the past, and will often tell their tales with smile. One of the hallmarks of self- awareness is a self- deprecating sense of humor. People with low self-esteem and awareness usually lack emotional intelligence and are not always truthful to themselves and others around them, and they like to fake and pretend always by playing different characters around different people.
Also, an individual with a reasonable degree of self-awareness will be able to work with a demanding client. The fact is, people with self-awareness know their actions affect others, and other people can have and impact on their moods. For this reasons, they have a deep understanding of their anger and frustration.
To be honest, those who are aware of themselves work with confidence, integrity and accountability.
