After digressions that took this topic off course, I return to the original subject matter with some related questions.

In relation to dating, what's he difference between healthy self-awareness and inhibitory self-consciousness?

How often in social situations have you been irritated by a person's lack of insight about how some of his actions and impulses convey a negative image of himself?

Over the years, how has deeper insight about yourself contributed to your ability to have a fuller social life?

OK, step back and re-group!! Such a party pooper, huh?

For dating to be successful, how important is it that both you and your dating partner have a lot of insight into yourselves?

"It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles."

Trying to get the inside story about insights, insiders and inciters while drinking cider,

Clever. I like you. Have a cider.

I'd say it's very important in that it helps with knowing what you want, what your goals are for the future, and the things you know are dealbreakers.
For myself, I think I've done a whole lot of growing the last few years and I now know what I'm looking for. In hindsight, the same insight I have now would have done me good when I was younger in terms of not dating the wrong guys etc.

One way that self-awareness would help oneself is to keep oneself away from inappropriate people.
For instance, Q could generally be attracted to the "bad boy/bad girl" type. If Q understood where that motivation came from, Q could re-train him/herself to stay away from that unhealthy type. Actually, I think just the self-awareness itself bursts the particular bubble of attraction--when you see something for what it really is, your perspective changes.

It hasn't. It's contributed to an ability to enjoy having an abundant unsocial life. Not being a true hermit, there's a bit of work and a bit of church and parachurch life required to meet the social outreach need but anything after that becomes a bit taxing. The fear of being alone, the fear of flying and the fear of being stalked by a demented clown are either not going to happen --- or they haven't happened yet.

I'm glad that a bit of the comical overcame your being economical in the production of posts. I appreciate the friendly gesture and would suggest a cider together if we lived near the same apple tree.

Your quotes suggests that dating can be like a war. May you win the big battles.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. :) It sounds as though your new awareness came as much from experiences as from what might be called insights in the strict intellectual sense. I suppose that there are some kinds of new consciousness that can never come from insights alone.
