Tags – Dialogical Self
How do you place yourself in your surrounding?
If you are like the most of us, you place yourself right in the centre. You not only measure your own attributes from a self perspective, but also extend yourself to the externalities. You like using terms, such as self-criticism and self-consultancy, because they sound deep.
Self vs the Surrounding
But, what you are eventually doing is – dimming the transition from the self to the surrounding, from the internal to the external. And, this is where problems start to happen.
In reality, there is a sharp separation between you and your surrounding.
Establishing the Separation
Most of your actions count for merely a blip in the system. In fact, it is selfish to heighten your worth to a level where it starts growing onto the external reality. Keep the worth within yourself and it will do wonders for you.
But, ironically, by understanding this separation, you can heighten your impact on the surrounding. It will allow you to put an effort into understanding what the externalities really are.
For this to happen, you need to stop measuring the externalities with your personalised views. You need to start separating yourself from what surround you and make your decisions based on a deeper understanding, rather than from a personal one.
The Dialogical Self
You need to understand the dialogical self – the attribute dimming this separation between the self and the externalities.
An understanding of the dialogical self is a powerful tool. It is not meant to be tested through generating hypothesis. But, it is rather a mean of generating new ideas. Just like the one we are generating here – a separation of the self from the surrounding to improve your chances of success in business.
And, there are obvious reasons for doing so.
Self Separation in Business
Businesses are meant to cater to a clientele. Whether you provide a product or a service, you are fulfilling wants and needs. And in order to establish these wants and needs, you need to be a bit more selfless.
You need to draw the line and think from the external perspective. And, if you are unable to think from the external perspective, you need to develop the skill of listening to a point where it can appropriately reduce the need for it. In any case, you need to get into the shoes of other people through perspective taking. The way you develop the perspective thinking is down to you for now.
