EQ & Awareness

When it comes to being aware of what's happening around you I've always been very intrigued by one little puzzle: If you think you are aware of everything that's going on around you, how can you be sure?

You see, there are 3 levels of awareness: aware, aware you are unaware and unaware you are unaware. In other words, you would either think you are aware of your surroundings, or you would think you are unaware and always in your own world. But if you think you are aware, how do you know for sure? Sometimes you don't know what you don't know.

We all know people who are very aware of everything that's going on and display a very high EQ. These people are aware.

We also know people with not so high EQ and have no idea what's going on around them in social terms(what people think of them etc). But they sort of know it themselves aka they are aware they are unaware.

Finally, we all know of a few people, or even just that one person, who are not aware of what is going on around them but seems to think they are. They are unaware that they are unaware.

So if you think you are aware, are you sure you are aware?

Unlike most MuscleCeption posts, I do not have a solution here. Would love to hear from anyone if they have a solution/conclusion. If not, just sharing my thoughts as always and this post is for those who think they are aware to question themselves and for everyone to just ponder for a moment.
