  1. Start by asking yourself questions. For example, For what purpose do I want to understand myself? What good will it do me if I understand myself? What will I lose if I understand myself? How do I even know that I've figured myself out? And once I understand myself, can I stop understanding? And how will I know that there isn't something else that exists that I haven't figured out yet?

    How do I know that I have learned my true self? What is Truth? And does it even exist? Is “experience the criterion of truth”? Experience is a set of emotional assessments…

    Perhaps someone will say that the questions are complex. Perhaps. But the questions asked are not easy in themselves. �

    The first level is the level of practical results. Why do you need this? What is the goal? What will it allow you to decide, do, or improve? Perhaps you want to change something in your life, in yourself. Then there are absolutely practical and effective methods that will allow you to solve this problem quickly enough. To do this, read books, attend trainings, seminars, coaches, etc.

    The second level is the process level. When you don't care why you think about it, but the process of having questions of this level is important to you. And there is a trap here.�

    In programming, there is such a term as recursion. This is when a function calls itself. In other words, you can only understand recursion by understanding recursion 🙂

    Similarly, in quantum physics, there is a concept of “observer effect” – this is when an observer influences the course of the observation process by the process of his observation.�

    At this level, we can endlessly create new experiences and discover new truths. This is a very exciting and informative process, but, unfortunately, if it becomes unmanageable, it can lead a person to a psychiatric clinic with all the consequences…

    Therefore, even if it seems that “the truth is somewhere near”, sometimes it is useful to discard all illusory attempts to understand the origins or get to them. It is important to define for yourself the goals and tasks that you want to solve as a result of the learning process. Also determine for yourself how you will understand that you have received the right solution, and what new prospects are now opening up for you.

    The algorithm is as follows. Find out what ways you can “sort yourself out” in, say, 10 days. And go ahead! Figure it out. Evaluate what you have received, how your capabilities have changed, and how you can apply it to change your life. Apply it. Evaluate the result. Do I still need to figure it out? If yes, then do another similar loop. If not, then finish this stage of your development and move on with your life!

  2. I recommend socionics or the Myers-Briggs typology that is consonant with it. The applied problems solved by these areas of psychology, sociology, and computer science are::

    • self-discovery and personal growth;
    • career development and career guidance;
    • development of organizations;
    • management and leadership trainings;
    • problem solving;
    • family consultations;
    • education and curriculum development;
    • scientific work;
    • interpersonal interaction trainings.
      In other words, it studies the informational interaction of a person with the environment and with other people, their psychological compatibility.

    There are a lot of letters there, it is not very easy to understand, but it becomes clear what he is good for and what others are good for.

  3. Study basic sciences and simultaneously develop social skills. In life, to achieve some success. When you have enough experience and knowledge and you are a person who can reason and draw conclusions, you will quickly find the answer to all your questions.

  4. It can really be difficult to understand yourself, as well as to distinguish your own desires from those imposed by society. I would advise you to first read the article gilber one/kak-razobratsya-v-sebe.And it offers effective methods from psychologists just for such cases.

  5. You can use a model in which no independent Self exists. The self is only the sum of experience and physical causes. They combine and interact to form new emergent qualities of the mind that did not exist before. That is, a person reflects the world in his mind and puts these reflections (sometimes distorted) on the shelves, and then from these reflections each new moment makes up a new Self.

    To understand these elements of experience, you can try to clarify when/where they appeared, who they came from, and what small elements are made up of large ones. That is, you can remember: I learned this in kindergarten, this in school, this in the store in the queue for bread, etc. I got this from my dad, this from my mom, this from a teacher at school, this from a boss at work, this from a random passerby, this is what I read on the Internet. I don't like tomato juice because I don't like the salty taste and dense consistency. I don't like dogs because they are slobbery and fussy, etc.

    These studies of personality elements are useful for clarifying your comfort zone. If there is any inconvenience, you can quickly understand the reasons for the discrepancy between the phenomenon and the ideas of comfort. In this way, you can quickly neutralize the inconvenience, either by changing the external phenomenon, or by changing the consciousness. Also, understanding the comfort zone can be useful for development. When it becomes clear that the world has changed, and it becomes more difficult to live as before, you can work on rebuilding your comfort zone, adjusting to new conditions. You can give up the elements of the mind that were once important, but now have no basis in reality. And vice versa, discover something new and important in the world and update the internal picture of the world in order to get closer to reality.

    Also, understanding the components of a person's personality is useful for forming the right goals. When it is clear to which things the mind is attached and from which it is free, then you can build the most clear goal, the process of achieving which will be the easiest and most pleasant.
