    Had to think about this answer, Mike, I grew up Old School and the words "Just shut up and do your job" applied, I think a degree of Self Awareness is needed to learn your strengths and flaws, I think these days it quickly turns from self awareness to self absorbed and a little too much dissecting of everything. Way to much media hype, which gives young people unattainable goals. So, in my opinion, give yourself a reality check every so often and just be You and ease on down the road with a healthy dose of humor and friendship

    No, i don't believe there is a danger with being too self-aware. You can never be "Too self aware". Only too into yourself.
    There's no problem with knowing what you're feeling. It's only when you let it consume you and start boasting about it that it becomes a danger to yourself.

    I don't think one can ever fully understand themself, but you can come close. I think that if you're aware, you could use that understading of yourself from becoming arrocgant or self absorbed once you recognize that trait. I can see how it can be the downfall of a person, but personally I feel it very important to be as aware of myself as possible.

    I'm the same way. Too self critical.
    One of my shrinks told me that my problem is that I'm too aware. I asked him too aware of what. He said "everything".
    I thought to myself, well that's just great ;-)

    lol ! You would think drinking would have killed a few. That was why I loved being drunk. I felt like the world around me was a movie and I was invisible. It was bliss until reality crept back in .

    I think so, because I belive with a heightened sense of self awareness can come a hightened sense of arogance.

    No harm in uderstanding who you are, when you examine everything to the n'th degree and force your opinions on others. There's a difference in self-aware and self-obsessed.

    Great answer :)
    I know this a tough one. I thought the Voltaire quote was great, so I just had to share it. Plus I've really been throwing out a lot of fluff lately.
