自分の強みと弱みを知ることのメリット

あなたはどれくらい自分のことを知っているでしょうか?

毎日強みに取り組む機会のある人は、ない人よりも6倍も意欲的かつ生産的に仕事に打ち込む傾向があり、総じて「生活の質がとても高い」と述べる傾向が3倍以上にのぼる。
(引用:ストレングス・ファインダー2.0 トム・ラス著 日本経済新聞出版社 P6)

この記事では自分の性格や強み、弱みを掘り下げて認識することのメリットを書いていきます。

まずは5分くらいで自分で認識している強みと弱みをあげてスマホのメモにでも書きだしてみましょう。

ぼくの場合は最初は以下のような認識でした。

  • 自分で考えて行動できる
  • まわりの人に気配りできる
  • おおらか、めったに怒らない
  • 人見知り
  • あがり症
  • あきっぽい

・・・しかし!

この程度の自分分析ではふわっとしすぎていて、そこから得られるものは何もなさそうでした。

あなたはどうでしょうか?

もしぼくと同じようなレベルでしか自分を認識していないようなら、もっともっと深く掘り下げて自分を分析してみましょう。

自分を知ることのメリット


自分が「弱み」だと認識していることは意外と正確です。

なぜなら仕事や遊びで失敗したときに浮彫りになりやすいし、他の人からも指摘されやすいからです。

失敗というのは悔しさとか恥ずかしさから、いつまでも頭から離れないことが多く、何が悪かったのか振り返ることにつながることでも認識されやすいのです。

しかし「強み」は普段あたり前にこなせていることが多いです。

つまり認識するところに至っていないのです。

他にもたとえば、表彰されたりとか給与があがったりといった目に見える評価をされることがあっても、自分のどんな資質が生かせたのかというところまで分析していないと、強みを認識することはできません。

そうなるともう・・・

「あなたのこういうところが素晴らしい」

みたいに自分のことをよく見てくれている人から褒められることでもないと、なかなか強みとして認識することはできないのです。

自分分析をするメリットは他の人には難しいけれど、自分はあたりまえにこなせることを発見することで、隠れた「強み」を認識できることにあります。

きの丸
ドラクエとかのRPGみたいにキャラクタの属性が数値化されていたら、どう生かせばいいか丸わかりだよね!

弱い武器で無理して戦っていないですか?

相手にしているモンスターと武器の属性の相性はどうですか?

自分の中のもっとも強い武器で相性の良いモンスターと戦うことが大事です。

ぼくが40歳目前であらためて自分分析をしようと思ったきっかけは、起業して失敗したことを振り返ったことです。

何ができていたらうまくいっていただろう?

ということばかり考えてきたことが、どうやら間違いだと気付いたからです。

ろくに自分分析をせずに、何をやりたいかが先行すると「弱み」を克服することにあまりに多くの時間をとられます。

やりたいことに対する熱意が、この非効率を見えなくしてしまっていたんですね。

仕事も遊びも「強み」を全面に出せるものに限定していくべきです。

「強み」にフォーカスすれば、失敗して浮彫りになる「弱み」も気にならなくなってきます。

これは、ストレス社会を生きていくうえで重要なアプローチになるはずです。

このあとの記事では、ぼくが自分分析に使った具体的な方法を紹介していきます。

あなたも自分の中の隠れた「強み」を知って、一緒にストレスフリーな人生を楽しみましょう。
