Johari Window

​The Johari window is a technique that helps people better understand their relationship with themselves and others. It was created by psychologists Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in 1955. There are four components of the Johari Window:

  • Known Self: Things we and others know about ourself

  • Hidden Self: Things that we know about ourself that others do not know

  • Blind Self: Things others know about us which we do not know

  • Unknown Self: Things neither we nor others know about ourself
