Self Awareness Test – Discover Your Hidden Opportunity for Growth and Success

ArticlesComments Off on Self Awareness Test – Discover Your Hidden Opportunity for Growth and Success

UPDATE: 1/25/17 Self awareness test feedback: This is like lesson organized as questions.

Welcome! Our self awareness test is located on this page. You’ll be forwarded to your results once you hit the submit button. No email or obligation required to get your results.

You can scroll down to the quiz right away, but we suggest you read the introductory paragraphs, which contain important instructions. This self awareness test is original – anonline quiz that will give you uncommonly useful opportunities for personal growth.

FYI, this self awareness test does not include interpersonal awareness, awareness in relationships, which may be the topic of a future project at the iNLP Center.

How self aware are you?

And do you have enough curiosity to take a penetrating self awareness test that promises a few surprising twists? The online test on this page will inspire you to think about areas of your life that you’ve perhaps never considered before. It might be challenging. And that’s good!

Why?

Because personal enlightenment begins with self awareness. This self awareness test on this will put self awareness into a framework to give you a solid idea where you stand. On a journey toward greater enlightenment, this could be the tool you’ve been looking for. You should get several clear insights and even some aha-moments.

Sound good?

Any quality self awareness test should consider what’s going on beneath the surface.

The iNLP Center uses the diagram above when teaching the NLP Meta Model, which is a set of questions that probe beneath the surface of common, vague communication.

The Meta Model concept opens the portal into a whole new world of self-discovery. Some of these discoveries are featured in our self awareness test.

What was once unconscious becomes conscious. Enlightenment!

The self you can be aware of is much more than the conscious mind. Neuro-Linguistic Programming suggests that much of our thinking and communication lies outside conscious awareness (non-verbal communication, to give one simple example, goes largely unnoticed by most). Non-conscious thoughts and communication have a much greater impact than the communication we consciously notice. Here’s a great post that cites research on this.

Likewise, your unconscious mind has a much greater impact on your life than you can imagine. For example, 90% of decisions are made unconsciously, according to research. You only know what you’ve decided moments after the fact.

Doesn’t it seem important to increase your self awareness?

The self is much more than the conscious mind. Neuro-Linguistic Programming studies the thinking and communication that lies outside of conscious awareness (non-verbal communication goes largely unnoticed by most). However, non-conscious thoughts and communication have a dramatic impact. The more aware you are, the more choices you have!

iNLP Students: I’ll use a special, interactive version of the self awareness test in an upcoming iNLP Center student webinar. This is a chance, if you’re an iNLP student, to get a jump on things!

Now, NLP students and practitioners have an advantage over non-NLP-trained people, as they have been learning material that naturally expands self awareness. Of course, you don’t need to be enrolled in an NLP course to benefit from this test. It’s for everyone.

The self awareness test should prove to be enlightening to anyone, even to those who’ve been working on themselves for years.

How to take the self awareness test:

Each question on the self awareness test has five response options. Honestly, choose the option that best describes you. When you submit the self awareness test, you’ll be forwarded to your score and an interpretation.

FYI, this self awareness test is not a scientific or clinical assessment. The self awareness test is based on my 25 years of experience as a counselor, NLP practitioner, NLP trainer and life coach. I have no control over the test conditions whatsoever, so consider your results to be for your own entertainment or subjective education only.

The areas represented on the self awareness test represent the ‘hot spots’ of self awareness that can either save people from problems and pain or lead you straight to them.

The Self-Awareness Test Categories: Please read before taking and submitting your self awareness test.

Inner Self – Visual, auditory and kinesthetic

A classic model of neuro-linguistic programming, the VAK model suggests we process information on the inside through seeing, hearing and feeling. Further, our processing is redundant. In other words, seeing an internal image will inspire feelings about the image and sounds either related to the image or our own inner commentary. Seeing, hearing and feeling all work together.

Personal Paradigm

A personal paradigm is a worldview. It answers questions about how life exists and why we’re here. There is a God who created the universe. There is not a God. People are basically good and here to help each other. People are animals interested in survival. And so forth.

Personal Beliefs: Positive and Negative

Personal beliefs are perspectives about what is true (for you). In the self-awareness test, we’ll focus on your internal beliefs related to who you are and what you’re capable of accomplishing in the world.

Life Values

Life values are indications of what’s important to you in life. You can trust that a value is important to you (or congruent) when it successfully guides your decisions. So, if health is important to you, then you will make healthy decisions. If success is important to you, then you’ll make decisions and spend your time in ways that lead to greater success.

Inner Conflicts

Inner conflict may be a universal human condition. It can happen when our beliefs or values conflict with each other. For example, you may believe you are capable of succeeding in life. At the same time, you may harbor doubts about your abilities or fears. This is a sign of inner conflict.

You may also have values that conflict. You may value security because it helps you feel safe. At the same time, you may love freedom. These two values may lead to conflicting desires and difficult decisions.

stress and negativity Triggers

Triggers are those things in the outside world that automatically set you off into a negative state. A classic example is someone running their fingernails down a chalkboard (although chalkboards aren’t so common anymore:). This can automatically make you cringe.

Throughout each day, when you find yourself in a negative state, there is always a trigger – something (on the inside or out) that prompted your reaction. A particular tone of voice or seeing a specific object (dirty socks left on the floor) might trigger you, for example.

Inner Parents

The influence of parents or primary caregivers is pervasive. Nobody leaves childhood without taking their parents with them in some form on the inside. Beliefs, values, behaviors and personal paradigms are all heavily influenced by parents during formative years. How are you carrying your parental influence?

personal Limitations

We all have limitations. Some of these are self-imposed, usually due to limiting beliefs. Others are legitimate limitations to our intelligence and natural skills. For example, I know I do not have the intellectual capacity to formulate physics theories like Einstein. I know I can’t beat Roger Federer in tennis. In this case, the word can’t is not a negative term. It’s simply the truth about the limits of my skills or natural gifts.

Self-Sabotage

Getting in our own way is another universal tendency. Do you know why you sometimes sabotage your own success? And do you know how – or understand the intention behind doing so?

Your Future

Human beings are naturally goal-oriented. We move toward what we want. Consciously setting goals is one way to be intentional about your future. This section of the self awareness test will help you learn where you stand in this area.
