Description

One of the trickiest tasks we ever face is that of working out who we really are. If we're asked directly to describe ourselves, our minds tend to go blank. We can't just sum ourselves up. We need prompts and suggestions and more detailed enquiries that help tease out and organise our picture of ourselves.





This book is designed to help us create a psychological portrait of ourselves with the use of some far more unusual, oblique, entertaining and playful prompts. The questions are designed to help us cumulatively appreciate how rich our identities are and how complicated, beautiful and sometimes painful our experiences have been.



If self-knowledge is central to a wise and fulfilled life, it is because it teaches us which of our many-often contradictory-feelings and plans we might trust, in order that we can be a little more sceptical around our first impulses and less puzzled by the ebb and flow of our moods. We can understand where some of our feelings have come from and what might be driving our convictions and our longings.

Review quote

***What readers are saying***

By far the most extraordinarily helpful journal, questions that are actually relevant to self discovery, exploration, and closure.

This is even more interesting than I expected. I am very keen to think and answer a one more question every time I open it. And the idea from the end is really creative!

Another great interactive resource from School of Life to help identify and understand the mind's perception of the reality.
