Self-Criticism
Novice Level
This goal sheet demonstrates how I am self-critical.  Nobody knows you better than yourself.  This is why you are the best person to provide criticism.  I seem to be pretty good at providing self-criticism; maybe I 'have been too good at it. I always seem to be criticizing myself.  
Goal sheet/Action plan
I have the ability to recognize my own biases.  I still do not believe that I will be able to work in a nursing home.  I still may change my mind, but I don't think I will.  It's not that I don't have an open mind when it comes to working with the elderly, I just don't think that it's for me.

This journal entry is another example of my self-criticism.  In this journal entry I was criticizing my testing abilities, my portfolio, and my learning in general.  From this criticism  I find ways to improve.  This shows progression from just being self-critical.
Journal entry (5/8/00)
This journal entry is about test anxiety.  In this journal entry I am not only self-criticising my test taking abilities, but I am analyzing as to what causes the test taking ability.  The fact that I am able to do this shows progression from just being self-critical.
