Learn More About Self Disclosure

Self disclosure refers to the process of revealing personal, intimate information about oneself to another.

The information can contain your feelings, thoughts, fears, dreams, likes and dislikes. The three properties of self disclosure are :
1) Reciprocity: when you disclose information about yourself you expect the other person to reciprocate;
2) Appropriateness: understanding what you should and shouldn’t disclose to another person;
3) Risk: taking a risk to share details about yourself. Through self-disclosure, two individuals get to know one another on a deeper level. Self-disclosure also functions as a way for people to express their feelings about a situation, to inform others of their thoughts and opinions, to elicit reassurance about their feelings, or to seek advice.
