The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.
You are reading this page because rhetorical pain wants to know how you'd describe him or her - pick the five or six words from the list below that you think describe rhetorical pain the best. (You can set up your own Johari Window afterwards, if you like.)
Warning: If you're typing in URLs directly, this might not be the rhetorical pain you know, it could just be someone else who's used the name. Ask your rhetorical pain if this is their Johari Window.
