"Do you know yourself extremely well, fairly well, or not at all? Why or why not?"
I know myself fairly well. I have a coherent list of principles and values. But, with regards to my 'feelings', I actually don't know myself well at all. I tend to deny my feelings and pretend I am a robot. I haven't learned how to process my emotions without going too far. I am not a in-the-middle type of person, if I feel about something, I feel it strongly and intensely. If I don't, then I really don't. I know that much. My friends are always pointing out things about me, why I act the way I do in personal relationships and my small scale actions and it is always surprising and insightful. I seem to know myself on an impersonal level, as in what I want my life to be, who I am in society and what I wish to accomplish, what I admire in others, what I wish to be. But on a day to day basis, I actually don't know myself at all. I guess this is because in my mind, there is this strong image of the person I need/want to be and then, there is the true me and I am always denying the true me. I keep pushing myself and it's not a bad thing, I need to be that person or I won't be able to accomplish what I want, but I need to integrate the two more.
"If you could change something about yourself, what would it be?"
Health-wise I would change myself. Not physically or mentally or emotionally, I am fine and proud of all of that. But...health-wise, I'd like to be able to not worry about my medical condition. I used to want silly things and I laugh at it now because I was perfectly fine before.
"Do you have an ideal self image? Why or why not? If so what is it?"
I do. I want to be a very capable and influential person who is not easily discouraged from my ideas and my plans. I want to be emotionally stable and always optimistic. I still want to see possibilities that not everyone sees and be able to do something with that knowledge and inspiration. I still want to be me, but in sharper, stronger and brighter ways.
