Temet Nosce. “You know what that means? It’s Latin. Means ‘Know thyself.'”

The most interesting thing to me about The Apprentice is how clueless everyone is. They don’t have the slightest idea the kind of impression they make. Jessie was by far the worst negotiator on her team, but she thinks she did a good job. Tammy thinks she’s pretty good, has no clue that every single thing she says is cringeworthy. Omarosa knows everyone hates her but thinks it’s everyone else’s problem, not herself. Just in general, people’s impressions of themselves is wildly out of whack with how other people see them.

There’s one inescapable conclusion, at least for me: *I’m* probably not aware of how other people see me either. If everyone’s clueless, I don’t think I’m the exception.

I dunno, I find self-awareness really interesting. I loved that idea in Matrix Rel/Rev. That knowing who you are is much more important than the “choices” you make. I dunno, I think sometimes I spend too much time worrying about what I’m going to do and not enough time figuring out who I am. But anyway.
