What are the advantages and disadvantages of knowing yourself?

Pros:

I am honest

I'm trustworthy

I have a dark sense of humor

I am a generous person

I will help you if you really need it ... Be it with food, money, taking you somewhere, etc.

I'm sincere with you

I have no intention of deceiving you

Cons:

I am honest. I found out the hard way that people don't want to hear the truth. And most people only want your opinion if they ask for it.

I have a dark sense of humor ... I am funny, however my type of humor can offend certain people.

I am giving person. Why is this a scam? People can take advantage of the fact that I am giving. While I do not give to receive something in return

I am giving person. Why is this a scam? People can take advantage of the fact that I am giving. While I am not giving to get something back, I would appreciate if you would return the favor in some way.

I don't deal with nonsense. I am a good boy. Although if I feel like someone else is playing games with me, or is not involved in the relationship… I interrupt.
That is not a scam for me. Although it is for other people.

Thank you for your time. Have a nice day.

You must be true to yourself as you are. For me that is pro and con. Knowing my weaknesses and doing less and less to make my idiocy explode. Pro. Knowing that I can do certain things without endangering anyone directly what others should not do, knowing that indirectly my actions can be characterized as my forgiveness of said actions for others, young people for example, when the truth is that in the example in mind right now I do not approve but condemn that young people do. I know that I am the way I am and that when people come to fast cycling in their opinions of me for some time

You must be true to yourself as you are. For me that is pro and con. Knowing my weaknesses and doing less and less to make my idiocy explode. Pro. Knowing that I can do certain things without endangering anyone directly what others should not do, knowing that indirectly my actions can be characterized as my forgiveness of said actions for others, young people for example, when the truth is that in the example in mind right now I do not approve but condemn that young people do. I know that I am the way I am and that when people rapidly cycle through their opinions of me because of some thought that they heard that was being put in context and not finished, this type of reactionary wavers back and forth against which I too am guilty. de is a scam of being me that knowing me is an advantage of.

The pros and cons are relative, so it will depend on who you ask, but the only downside to knowing yourself is what you have to go through to do it.

You have to remove all the mental conditioning that is between you and your sense of yourself. The further you go through, the more deeply you will know yourself. This means going through all the trauma, fears, pain, sadness, and all the other conditioning that has been put on top of it all to protect you from it, including anger, shame, guilt, pain, jealousy, etc.

The pros and cons are relative, so it will depend on who you ask, but the only downside to knowing yourself is what you have to go through to do it.

You have to remove all the mental conditioning that is between you and your sense of yourself. The further you go through, the more deeply you will know yourself. This means going through all the trauma, fears, pain, sadness, and all the other conditioning that has been put on top of it all to protect you from it, including anger, shame, guilt, pain, jealousy, etc.

However, the benefits of knowing yourself can be worth it. A sense of equanimity. An underlying peace with all things that exist. A deep connection with the truth, with the real. This also includes other people. The ability to truly love and be loved. A feeling of fullness. A certain degree of understanding of all things.

Pros:

Comfort accepting new things

Ability to change, even proactively

Chance to discover the only person you have to live with 24/7

Learn more about past trauma and what its motivations stem from

Cons:

Discomfort with yourself when you realize how ugly you can be to yourself

Difficulty accepting the lack of awareness of others.

External change that reflects your internal changes

Pro

I calculate every move I make. I am very methodical

I love food

If I am your friend, I will support you in battle.

I am very thrifty

I have a high IQ with music and cars.

I have a great sense of humor

you need a shirt here, take the one from my back

I love children

swindle

I have clinical depression and anxiety

you have a chance with me. Fuck me, we're done

It takes a lot to get me to react because I analyze everyone and the situation on how to respond. It seems that I am cold or I do not care.

The Pros: I'll do my best to make your ideas come true.

I firmly believe that cooperation is the main source of evolution. You don't need to be the strongest, smartest, or fastest to be successful in the long run. All you need is to know how to arrange and build high-quality relationships between people that are based on honesty.

Let's come together for a healthy goal and collaborate to create this reality together.
The cons: it's up to you.
Peace

There are no cons. Only pros. By knowing yourself, you can choose what is right for you. People who don't know themselves can end up in wrong marriages, wrong cities, wrong jobs, and so on. You must know yourself. It's very sad if you don't. You will end up in the wrong places.

"Never forget who you are, you bastard. Because the world won't. Use them as your shield and they will not be used to hurt you. "

I never understood the depth of these words until I reread and reexamined my own self after succumbing a number of my golden years to a state of uncontrollable sadness. I'm not saying he was depressed, but he was definitely sad for countless reasons.

Today, discovering the root cause of the problem has helped me feel better. Stronger mentally confident. And hence my answer.

"Never forget who you are, you bastard. Because the world won't. Use them as your shield and they will not be used to hurt you. "

I never understood the depth of these words until I reread and reexamined my own self after succumbing a number of my golden years to a state of uncontrollable sadness. I'm not saying he was depressed, but he was definitely sad for countless reasons.

Today, discovering the root cause of the problem has helped me feel better. Stronger mentally confident. And hence my answer.

  1. I am a child of parental neglect - my parents, both working, had very little time for me growing up. And this fact has left me a scar that to date seems impossible to remove. But over the years, I've learned step by step how to control my own people's attention urges. I'm what those frustrated ex-boyfriends would call, "a clingy, attention-seeking bitch" because I'd constantly insist on being connected on the phone. (Trying to improve)
  2. Clingy: I have already stated the root of my 'attachment' and emotional attachment. If you have known me for years, you will know that deep down I am hungry for a feeling of permanent attachment. I'm afraid of making new friends because friendships don't last after a certain point. I am afraid of making a boyfriend because, I understand, I am a conversationalist who insists on keeping communication alive. (Learning the concept of space)
  3. Fear: of many things actually, but especially in my relationships. I have this fear that things will break even if you do everything correctly in life. You might get fired anyway, you can divorce the blue moon! Yes, very scared when it comes to real things in life. (Probably failing here)
  4. Monochromatic points of view: I think the world is like a chessboard. It is very good or very bad. There is nothing in between for me. (I try, but I haven't changed my mind on this yet)
  5. Exaggerated Thinker: I overanalyze many things in life, and in most of my cases, the scale shifts to the negative side. (Trying to improve)
  6. Ultimately very pessimistic: Gone are the days when I used to think the world is one big beautiful bed of roses with too many opportunities! (I don't know the verdict on this yet)
  7. Innocent: Okay, let's call him "immature"! :P
  8. Materialistic: I want certain things in life, but the difference is that I want to earn them myself. If I want a new shoe, I'll drop everything else to work hard specifically for that material good. I will not depend on anyone else for it. However, I think it is still a materialistic trait.
  9. V for Vendetta: Something that has stuck with me since my childhood is my vengeful nature. I wonder if it will ever get better, but I have always tried to let go of this anger of my own and this strange urge to destroy the people who hurt me in the past.
  10. Denial: Sometimes I overlook my own mistakes in dealing with the ups and downs of life. (Improve, it will take time)

Ultimately, I can safely say, I am aware of my negatives. But before this tacky answer concludes, here's a bonus of being me:

I want to keep improving myself to become a less imperfect person every day. :)

I think there should be a balance between being humble and loving yourself. So, ways you can show that you love yourself, without being too full of yourself:

  • Take care of yourself: eat well, wash your face, get enough exercise, etc.
  • Point out your perfections instead of flaws: If you like your eyes, make yourself notice how beautiful your eyes are, instead of saying how much you hate your nose.
  • Feel satisfied with yourself: Many people wish they could change themselves, but you really should notice that you are perfect and different, not bad and ugly. There is nothing that should be c

I think there should be a balance between being humble and loving yourself. So, ways you can show that you love yourself, without being too full of yourself:

  • Take care of yourself: eat well, wash your face, get enough exercise, etc.
  • Point out your perfections instead of flaws: If you like your eyes, make yourself notice how beautiful your eyes are, instead of saying how much you hate your nose.
  • Feel satisfied with yourself: Many people wish they could change themselves, but you really should notice that you are perfect and different, not bad and ugly. There is nothing that needs to be changed about you. So realizing it's a way to show that you love yourself

However, there is an unhealthy limit to this. Never love yourself in these ways ...:

  • Tell everyone that you are better than them
  • Point out everyone's flaws and then point out your perfections.
  • Just talking about how beautiful / handsome you are
  • Unable to look away from the mirror
  • On taking selfies
  • Post photos of yourself on social media, saying that you are beautiful

All of that is true in a way, but never do it to the point where no one likes you. It's more like being an idiot and falling in love with yourself.

How you can show that you don't love yourself is:

  • Say you hate yourself (pretty explicit)
  • Not eating enough
  • Just take pictures of yourself so you can see how "ugly" you are.
  • Don't smile (well, I mean it's okay not to smile honestly)
  • Not taking care of yourself
  • Shrugging in the mirror
  • Be angry a lot (uf)
  • Say negative things about yourself
  • Point out only its "flaws"

I based that on me. I've been through self-hatred. Now I am starting to love myself more. And what helped me with that were friends and music. Music to express yourself and friends to cheer you up :)

  • I love a good conversation about life, other planets, other life forms, existential convos (I can't spell them).
  • I like Pokémon. I like unicorns.
  • I have bows in my hair.
  • I like the Air Max.

Cons:

  • Sometimes too kind, loving, generous
  • Sometimes I don't listen to my instincts
  • Emotional regulation of a flea
  • Putting others before myself to the point that it is a fault.
  • Too confident sometimes.
  • Illegal things amuse me.
  • I have some terrible mental illnesses. Sometimes this is a pro because you learn it in depth. Sometimes it is a scam because:
  • Sometimes I poke holes in the walls (rarely now and I've learned how to properly patch and paint them ... my dad got tired of doing it).
  • I get hungry hahaha
  • If I'm a maniac, I'll talk non-stop. Just tell me to shut up.
  • I am lazy about diabetes because:
  • I get chronically depressed and unmotivated. Although I take care of myself.
  • Sometimes I have to go to a mental hospital, but I do better.
  • I have a low immune system so I get very sick.
  • I am noctournal
  • Sometimes I relapse. I do it less and less, but I don't need to be scolded for it. I immediately tell someone and get help.
  • PTSD: I get yelled at and I will cry, but then I get extremely dangerously angry. Just don't yell in my face and you'll be right. Talk to me like a human.
  • I like raves. I had to put this as a scam because most people don't like them.
  • I can be too honest. I don't mean to offend though! And it is rare that it offends me, but from my life experience, if I tell you directly that I love you and I do not want you to make mistakes.
  • When I'm manic I will spend all my money. Not yours, mine. I make sure to pay the rent and the bills, but when the packages start to arrive constantly, they tell me to go back to taking my meds.

Overall, I think the pros outweigh the cons.

My strategy for answering the interview questions

This is my strategy for answering the interview questions:

  1. Begin by relating the question to a past experience.
  2. Tell the interviewer about your actions during the experience and how your actions affected the outcome.
  3. Share the result with the interviewer and then reflect on the experience.
  4. Examine the ways this experience will directly affect your work in your next position. Take this time to say that you have grown from this experience and will be able to tackle bigger and better problems.

ALWAYS RELEASE WITH JOB DESCRIPTION.

Following this 4 step

ALWAYS RELEASE WITH JOB DESCRIPTION.

By following this 4-step process, we can successfully answer any interview question that comes our way. Below is an example showing this in use.

To clarify, I will give my answer, then I will analyze how the answer follows the strategy, and finally I will give you advice on how to take my answer and make it yours.

He has not yet achieved his greatest achievement. By consistently working toward your goals, you will continue to accomplish and succeed in more important things in your life.


What are some of your strengths?

My Answer: I am a very strong problem solver and I have the ability to see a situation from different perspectives, allowing me to complete my work in the face of difficult obstacles. My communication skills are excellent and I don't procrastinate in my school work.

My problem-solving skills have allowed me to get excellent grades on a difficult subject, and by reading and learning about the industry, I have a broad view of the techniques that I can apply to a given problem. This job needs a solid troubleshooter, so I think I'll be able to jump in and make an impact right away.

Comment: Everyone has strengths and it is important to expand on your strengths. Don't say: I'm smart and got good grades in school. Go into the details of how you received those ratings and what your strategies for success were.

By going into the details, the interviewer will be able to learn more about how you will attack and identify problems, and what your plans are for solving those problems.

How to relate to you: If the position is based on communicating with clients and other teammates, be sure to include that you have exceptional communication skills and that you have experience working with teams. After saying this, talk about an experience when you were on a team; Describe what happened, the result of the problem, and how you and you solved this problem.

This will show the hiring manager that you are not just speaking words, but can actually back you up. Again, be sure to look at the job description to make sure you describe yourself as someone the interviewer is looking to hire. Someone who's going to be on the phone all day talking to clients doesn't need to know how to type fast or program a calculator and vice versa.

Go into detail about the strengths that are relevant to the position and that will allow you to be successful in your next job.


What is one of your weaknesses?

My Answer: One of the things I struggle with when I tackle a problem is that I try to throw everything I know into a problem and overthink it. Most of the time I have to step back, take a deep breath, and say to myself, "There must be a simpler way to get to the solution." An example of this was last year in my programming class we built a Monte Carlo option pricing tool and it took my first program 10 seconds to do 10,000 simulations. This is incredibly slow and I was frustrated that I couldn't have a working solution. I scrapped everything and was back on the show in 1 night. The revised version was amazing. It could run 1,000,000 simulations in 2 seconds, a 500-fold increase in speed.

Comment: I won't bore you in simulation theory, but being able to tell a hiring manager that you consistently identified a problem, took action, and reached a positive conclusion will speak volumes about your potential. Having the ability to confidently throw in numbers and dive into your previous job is very beneficial.

Notice I didn't say: I'm a perfectionist or I work too hard. NEVER SAY THESE STATEMENTS WHEN ANSWERING THIS QUESTION. You want to distinguish yourself from the other potential hires.

How to relate to you: Be original and talk about something you are improving on. This will show that you are aware of your flaws, but have been working to get past your dealt hand. This shows resilience and adaptability in a professional manner.

Again, my answer was that I think too much about complex problems. Then I gave an example of how I overcame this weakness and how it is not as weak as before. Potential employers want to know that you can be flexible and learn from mistakes. No one is perfect, but if you are working on your blemishes this will show that you are successful and a valuable asset that needs to be hired.

YOU NEVER ANSWER THE QUESTION: What is your weakness? with "I AM A PERFECTIONIST" or "WORK TOO HARD". This will not distinguish you from the other potential hires. Be original and talk about something that you are improving on daily, weekly, monthly, etc.
