Internal self-awareness is introspective—what happens when we know ourselves well. External self-awareness is what happens when we correctly understand how others see us. You can excel at one and not the other.

… seven categories of self-knowledge.
These are:

  • our values,
  • passions,
  • aspirations,
  • fit (what type of environment is going to make us happy and engaged),
  • personality,
  • strengths and weaknesses, and
  • the impact we have on people around us.

self-control seems like something that is there to help us move our own agenda forward, but a lot of times self-control is really serving to move the group’s agenda forward and serve the group.
So it’s a much more social factor than I think we usually consider.
