Who Am I?, Book

Why We Love It: a guided journal with psychological exercises to develop self-understanding.




  • A guided journal with psychological exercises to develop self-understanding.

The book is filled with exercises to help us develop our self-understanding within key areas of our lives - helping to create a rich picture of our existence.

Psychology - Conscience and Guilt

For many centuries, conscience was thought of in religious terms as a moral voice – stemming from God – in our heads, judging the goodness or badness of our actions and intentions. It would lead us to feel guilty when we transgressed
and sometimes prompt us to do the right thing when there was a chance.

1) How active is your conscience?

2) What makes you feel guilty?

3) What do you rather easily allow yourself to get away with?
