63 offers a mode of expression of personality and dynamics of self and its relationship with others. It is a method of analyzing and understanding inter personal behaviour.

MODELS OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIP 6.3.2.1. Study of Awareness- Johari Window Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham have developed a model to look at one’s personality that can be known and unknown to self and known and unknown to others. The concept known as Johari Window is shown in Figure below. It is a technique to analyze and improve interpersonal transaction. The above figure indicates that there are four parts ( self) in all of us that has been indicated by four quadrants. These are explained below: ( a ) Open Self: Open Self is known as Public area . This quadrant indicates information about self is known to oneself and also to others. The information relates to feelings, motivation and behaviour of an individual, which he is willing to share with those whom he comes in contact. The individual behaves in a straight forward manner and is sharing. In an organizational setting, because of the openness of the individual the chances of conflict are reduced to minimum. ( b ) Blind Self: This quadrant is related to information is not known to self but known to others, who interact with you, know more about you. This is known as blind area. It is important that an individual should reduce blind area to the

For example, an individual may not be aware of the fact that he is extremely task oriented and employees do not like it. In other words, others know and perceive the individual as a hard taskmaster and dislike him because of this. This is blind area that a person is blind to the fact that he interacts with others in the professional manner. This situation is likely to create an unpleasant atmosphere in the organization. Individual therefore should reduce blind area and increase public area. This will reduce conflict situations to a great extent in interpersonal behaviour. ( c ) Hidden Self: Certain aspect of personality has formed this quadrant. Self knows information but others do not know it. There are certain aspects, which are private. Individual therefore does not want to share it with subordinates and wants to keep hidden. The area is also called Private Area.

    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.
