Personal Insight or self-insight is the ability to understand one’s own emotions, behaviours, thoughts, and beliefs, and the impact the above has on one’s general well-being. It is essential for emotional intelligence and mental health.

Increased personal insight leads to increased responses to the plight of others, which in return improves relationships and connections with other human beings. Research has also shown that people with higher levels of insight have higher self-esteem, are happier in their jobs, more attentive, and generally have a more positive sense of well-being. All the aforementioned is important for the optimal functioning of health care professionals.
