Self-reflection tool (English)

Your socio-temporal worldview

The scientifically and expert-validated novel Self-Reflection Tool provides a simple yet new and uniquely holistic tool that explores a person’s overall worldview. The tool, therefore, is an ideal starting point for further targeted and meaningful personal development.

Please read the instructions below before you start!

Number of questions: 27 (multiple choice and free text questions)

Time requirement: ca. 15 - 45 minutes, depending on the depth of your self-reflection (there may be some unusual questions, so take your time!)

Results: At the end of the self-reflection, you get the chance to request a detailed report that will outline your socio-temporal worldview constellation and related challenges and opportunities for your further journey in personal development. It will take about.a week to prepare the report. Your results are treated confidential.


Throughout the self-reflection, you will be visually guided by the Socio-Temporal Matrix to explore thought patterns in terms of the most essential dimensions of human psychology: the social and temporal world. This allows capturing the basic components of your socio-temporal worldview. We recommend that you visualize the socio-temporal matrix to navigate the definitions and questions of the self-reflection more easily. 

  1. Each field of the matrix represents a building block of your socio-temporal mental schema. In other words, these are the possible spots of socio-temporal thinking. Therefore, please distinguish between the questions that will aks for which fields of the socio-temporal matrix are most important to you and about which you are most often thinking. Your relevant fields will be explored in more detail throughout the self-reflection.
  2. You are mind-wandering up to half of your waking time. In this self-reflection, you will reflect upon your thinking as it usually occurs when you are free to think, i.e., not being consumed by a task or work. Think rather broadly, about your whole life philosophy, respectively worldview. This might comprise either or both of your private and professional life, depending on what priorities currently exist for you.
  3. Worldviews are relatively stable, but they can change over a lifetime. The questionnaire is exploring your current way of thinking. Towards the end of the self-reflection, though, you'll get the opportunity to also think about experienced or expected changes/shifts in your socio-temporal thinking.
  4. The more explanatory details and examples you provide, the higher the accuracy and richness of the results can be. Although often the tool offers you multiple-choice answers to choose from, you always also can choose the option ‘other’ and describe in your own words.

At the end of the self-reflection, you'll get presented with means for analyzing and comparing your results and suggestions for further readings based on your chosen answers. 

You'll also be able to request a more personalized analysis report with indications of possible personal development practices.
