Carl Jung famously said that that ‘everything that irritates us about others can lead to an understanding of ourselves’.
So next time we talk about a ‘difficult’ team member, colleague or ‘friend’ – what might it teach us about ourselves?
Loud people who talk non-stop annoy me intensely. The ones that never shut up.
So somewhere inside me is probably a louder person trying to get out. To be heard.
Which is a helpful piece of self-awareness for today!
