How often are you aware of your own actions? Do you see yourself as an object of criticism or do you prefer examining your own inner self and feelings ?
There are 2 types of self-consciousness, private and public.
Private self-consciousness is a tendency to introspect and examine your own thoughts, actions and feelings. Adjusting your behaviour on what you think 'feels right'.
Public self-consciousness is an awareness of your self as it is viewed by others. This means that you are more likely to adjust your behaviour based on the perception of what others think of you rather than what you think of yourself.
