A road trip to unearth your Real Self
In our journey together, we will prioritize relationships in your life by starting with the one you have with your self. through what you bring in (talk about), respond to, and make emotional commentary on, you will not only understand your self better, but have a less cerebral (in your head) and more visceral (emotional and therefore more authentic) acceptance of you. In using introspection as a vehicle to unearth your real Self out from underneath the false self (everyone else's idea of who you are), say goodbye to a part of you that no longer serves you.
Introspection, as the term that means: 'of learning about one's own currently ongoing, or perhaps very recently past, mental states or processes. You can, of course, learn about your own mind in the same way you learn about others' minds—by reading psychology texts, by observing facial expressions (in a mirror), by examining readouts of brain activity, by noting patterns of past behavior—but it's generally thought that you can also learn about your mind introspectively, in a way that no one else can.
Introspection is also central to philosophy of mind, both as a process worth study in its own right and as a court of appeal for other claims about the mind. Philosophers of mind offer a variety of theories of the nature of introspection; and philosophical claims about consciousness, emotion, free will, personal identity, thought, belief, imagery, perception, and other mental phenomena are often thought to have introspective consequences or to be susceptible to introspective verification. For similar reasons, empirical psychologists too have discussed the accuracy of introspective judgments and the role of introspection in the science of the mind.
