Who Am I?

A guided journal with psychological exercises to develop self-understanding. 

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 who we are with the use of some unusual, oblique, entertaining and playful prompts. The book is filled with exercises to help us develop our self-understanding within key areas of our lives - helping to create a rich picture of our existence. 

Chapters Include: 

  • Psychology
  • Relationships
  • Sex
  • Other People
  • Work
  • Utopia
  • Sorrow & Compassion
  • Re-enchantment

Example Exercises:

Psychology - Conscience and Guilt

For many centuries, conscience was thought of in religious terms as a moral voice – stemming from God – in our heads, judging the goodness or badness of our actions and intentions. It would lead us to feel guilty when we transgressed
and sometimes prompt us to do the right thing when there was a chance.

1) How active is your conscience?

2) What makes you feel guilty?

3) What do you rather easily allow yourself to get away with?

Work - Ambitions

Any working life involves a balance between worldly and authentic concerns, a balancing act between what the world requires and what we like.

1) Rank in order of importance for you in your career: Money, Status, Creativity, Social Impact, Colleagues.

2) What do you hope for in each area?

Utopia - Utopian Cities

We all know that cities are nowadays far too expensive… but what do you think about the scale of buildings and streets, the architectural styles and the life at ground level?

1) Think of three cities you’ve really liked: what are they getting right?

2) What do you you think the ideal city would be like?
