Coming To Terms With Your Dark Side (Article)

The article begins with understanding the dark side each person has which is excessive egotism and low self-awareness. Author Michael Jarrett explains exactly what he means when talking about the fact that everyone has a dark side, referencing to R.L. Stevenson’s work which explains that we all have two distinctive and emerging personalities (the battle of our two selves).  Garrett  than points to the work of psychologists R. Hogan and J. Hogan who divide “the dark side” into 3 different styles (adventurous, dramatic, and compliant) and provides real world examples of those dealing with their dark side both successfully and unsuccessfully.  In the second half of the article Garrett provides input on the importance of being aware of this dark side and suggestion such as seeking professional advice that can help you deal efficiently with your “dark side”.
