Right answer – D. To express your true self and be brave


3. True or false

Vulnerability does not depend on the relationship you have with other person.

Right answer – FALSE.

Vulnerability is based on mutuality and requires boundaries and trust.

It is about sharing our feelings and experiences with people who have earned the right to hear them.


4. Vulnerability requires ___________ from the listener.

.

Mutually respectful vulnerability leads to increased connection, trust and engagement.

5. Perfectionism is a belief that….

A. I can do everything well

B. If I do things perfectly, I can minimise or avoid the pain of blame, judgement and shame

.

.

.

.

Right answer – B. If I do things perfectly, I can minimise or avoid the pain of blame, judgement and shame

Perfectionism is less about doing things right than it is about avoiding the consequence if you do it wrong. It’s more about pleasing others.

And if you think “your perfectionism” is not about all this, it’s just a genuine desire to make things right, then complete the task. Perfection comes with time and experience, you cannot wait until you make your very first poetry “perfect”.

Right answer – A. Connect with others


All this information was taken form Berne Brown’s research on vulnerability.

I tried to present it in a creative way to make it easy to understand and remember.

Hope you guys liked it! 🙂
