NGfL CYMRU GCaD Johari Window
NGfL CYMRU GCaD Johari Window Named after the first names of its inventors- Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham Useful models describing the process of human interaction.
NGfL CYMRU GCaD A four paned "window," dividing personal awareness into four different types as represented by its four quadrants: open, hidden, blind, and unknown. The lines dividing the four panes are like window shades, which can move as an interaction progresses.
NGfL CYMRU GCaD Known to Self Not Known to Self Known to Others Not Known to Others OPENBLIND HIDDENUNKNOWN
NGfL CYMRU GCaD Open 1. The "open" quadrant represents things that both I know about myself, and that you know about me
NGfL CYMRU GCaD Blind 2. The "blind" quadrant represents things that you know about me, but that I am unaware of
NGfL CYMRU GCaD Hidden 3. The "hidden" quadrant represents things that I know about myself, that you do not know
NGfL CYMRU GCaD Unknown 4. The "unknown" quadrant represents things that neither I know about myself, nor you know about me
NGfL CYMRU GCaD One way of enlarging the open quadrant is through self- disclosure, A give and take process between me and the people I interact with. As I share something about myself (I move information from my hidden quadrant into the open)
NGfL CYMRU GCaD Open Self Disclosure Blind Unknown Hidden
NGfL CYMRU GCaD If the other party is interested in getting to know me, they will reciprocate, by similarly disclosing information in their hidden quadrant
NGfL CYMRU GCaD We also gain knowledge about ourselves by receiving feedback from others this enables me to learn more about aspect of myself that I am unaware of and therefore moving information from my BLIND quadrant into the OPEN.
NGfL CYMRU GCaD As I share more and gain more information about myself I begin to gain insights through introspection about aspects of myself that both I and others were unaware of, things like impulses that drive us, motives and instincts, those less tangible things that we just accept but havent given much thought to. These insights help move information from the unknown quadrant into the OPEN
