Hi, Niklas Göke Great post, as usual. I love how you present self-awareness as a cognitive state, not a character trait.

One comment though. This question (‘how much time…” confuses me a little. Observation or introspection doesn’t equal to increased self-awareness. Some people get stuck in constant introspection without necessarily getting to know themselves better. Also, self-awareness requires ‘external self-awareness’ as Dr. Tasha Eurich calls it — other people help us uncover our blindspots (the unknown unknowns). I wrote about that here: https://medium.com/personal-growth/how-to-see-yourself-clearly-skip-the-introspection-mode-c66bfb05c061

Would love to hear your thoughts and continue the conversation. Thank you, Gustavo
