How to know yourself

Swiss Psychiatrist Paul Tournier claims:

No one comes to know himself through interospection.... Rather, it is in dialog, in his meeting with other persons. It is only by expressing his convictions to others that he becomes really conscious of them. He who would see himself clearly must open up to a confidant freely chosen and worthy of such trust. It may be a friend just as easily as a doctor; it may also be one's marital partner.

-Page 22 of "The art of talking so that people will Listen" by Paul W. Swets foreword by Norman Vincent Peale
