Best Ways To Get To Know Each Other Through Self Disclosure!
How To Get to Know Each Other?
Get to know each other more efficiently, and learn to enjoy others more. You can get to know each other by being open, a great way to break down walls between strangers. Bonds with close friends are also crucial and necessary. Self-disclosure can be an excellent way to break down barriers between strangers quickly, and also bond friends even more intimately.
I have always been a very open person when it comes to self-disclosure between myself and others. In some ways that are outstanding traits, yet in other ways, it can be something that can cause problems in my life.
It is usually best to set up a respectful boundary that you feel comfortable with, and then limit yourself to that point.
Some people are naturally outgoing, while others tend to be more reserved and introverted, this all must be considered with every person when deciding a comfort level for self-disclosure.
Keep in mind, that all the people that you talk with cannot be trusted with your personal information. Unless you do not mind them talking to others about you, you might want to be selective in how much and who do you share with personal details of your life? ~ Bill Greguska

Evaluate WHY You Are Sharing?
- There are times when I decide it is worth the risk to share something with someone I don’t know well. If they are hurting, and I know they are going through something I have experience with, I may decide the opportunity to be of benefit outweighs the risk, and this differs from recklessly sharing in that I’ve made an intentional assessment and decision.
- Asking myself why I want to share something also helps me see when my motivation is ego-based. Do I want to share something because I think it will win me points with the other person or do I want to share because I believe the information will add value to the other person? The best rule of thumb is to share with others on the need to know basis.
