People have to evolve over time and adapt to a new life as circumstances change. Those who know themselves are at risk, what they can easily do, and can manage these adaptation processes in a predictable way by noticing their weaknesses.
Listing your strengths and weaknesses as the first thing you do as you begin your journey of self-knowledge will improve your awareness. What our energies add to our lives is a source of inspiration for us. While these things make us strong, such as the abilities, resources, possibilities, experience and knowledge we have, we need to develop the weaknesses. Examples of our weaknesses are our lack of talent, inadequacy of our internal and environmental resources and our failure in time management.
Each person has different strengths and weaknesses. The stronger your weaknesses, the more successful and desirable life will be. Knowing yourself will make it easier for you to live a satisfying life and will help you in matters like career selection and life partner selection.
You should not forget that you must honestly answer the questions asked in the journey of knowing yourself and the sum of your answers is important to define you.
