Over at Entrepreneur, contributor Thai Nguyen explains how asking for constructive feedback can be key to self-awareness:
We all have blind spots in our thinking patterns and behaviours. Asking for regular constructive feedback cuts through any self-deceit or one-dimensional views you might hold. But only ask people you'd consider mentors -- those who understand you; whom you respect; and will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.
Feedback is a great way to instantly discover your strengths and weaknesses so you can figure out how to harness them or improve them. It's like a shortcut for understanding your habits, quirks and behaviours. For more techniques for improving your self-awareness, head to the link below.
