The Jo-Hari Window

Blind Areas comprise behaviour that others can see but of which the individual is unaware.

Hidden Areas comprise behaviour that the individual keeps to himself/herself.

A decrease of the blind area occurs by the individual receiving feedback from others. A decrease of the hidden area occurs when the individual discloses himself/herself to others. (See dotted lines and arrows.)

Unexpected insights may reduce the unknown area.

The enlargement of the public area increases awareness and opens behaviour to an element of conscious choice in areas previously restricted or out of such control.
