This also happens to me often. Everyone has their own sensitive line as people were raised up in diversified origins of family environment in which different personalities and judgments were formed. For me, I was born some sort of oversensitive. When I was overwhelmed, misunderstood or unappreciated, I feel unhappy and fall into victim mode. I have known that many sensitive people like me will be easily upset by words and comments from others, or even by one word of complaint. For most of the time I just try to hide my sensitive to avoid conflicts, although I know this is not the best way to treat the sensitivity, and many times it made me unhappy for a while. But in order to avoid overacting on little things, I try to just take things in my stride and try not to think about things too much. Personally I think it’s worth it because self-awareness can benefit a prospective manager a lot in different perspectives. The best thing leaders can do to improve their effectiveness is to become more aware of what motivates them and their decision-making. Without self-awareness, a leader cannot understand his or her strengths and weakness and open to new ideas and opposing opinions. On the other hand, self-awareness is crucial when building a team. Knowing your natural strengths and weaknesses makes you manage your talent better, but you also must be acute of the input of others. If a manager is open-minded, different types of people on a team will also help contribute to further self-awareness and allow the manager to see more clearly what you do well and what others do well. Hi Lauren, I agree with you on your points about being aware of other people’s tipping points to avoid crossing their sensitive lines. I personally think the reason we are easy to cross sensitive lines of family members and closest friends, but be more cautious not to offend others, is that we tend to pay attention to how other people think about us and behave ourselves in a way to leave good impression. Family and friends are so close to us that they have already clearly known which type of person we are. In the premise that we are aware how we behave will not change our personal image in their minds, we tend to be less sensitive and less cautious when interacting with family and close friends.

When I first saw the term sensitive line I could not come up with a specific matter related to it neither. Just like what you said everyone is different and has their unique self-concept to define whether it is approach your sensitive line. For me, I am always oversensitive on little things and easily being upset by others’ casual words or making jokes about me which they do not offend me on purpose It seems that we have entirely different personalities on self-awareness as there isn’t anybody can say will really wind up bothering you. Do you think me being oversensitive as a consequence of thinking about things too much? When I was going over chapter 1, I read the method “self-disclosure” as a key to improvement in self-awareness. Do you think self-disclosure is a good way to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
