Background: Self-awareness is a crucial aspect of personality development and a key concept in psychology. It refers to the ability to understand oneself, including thoughts, feelings, and behaviors at a given time. Being self-aware means being able to recognize and understand one's own needs, desires, limitations and values, as well as reflecting on how we relate to others and the world around us. This research project presents a randomized controlled trial designed to evaluate the impact of self-coaching on self-awareness. Its main objective is to investigate whether this approach can increase self-awareness among participants. The self-coaching method will be implemented through a structured journal that aims to guide participants in achieving a greater understanding of themselves and their abilities. Participants in the study will be randomly assigned to two groups: an experimental group where participants will be taught the self-coaching method and a control group that will receive a video on self-awareness through a Youtube platform. The results obtained will be analyzed to assess any significant differences in self-awareness between the two groups, thus offering valuable insights into the effectiveness of this approach in promoting self-awareness.
