Self-consciousness is similar to self-awareness in that it has an inner and outer aspect. Inner self-consciousness is attention to and concern about your thoughts and feelings, often with an attempt to understand and analyze those thoughts. Outer self-consciousness is an awareness of and concern about how you and your behavior appear to others. For example, a very self-conscious person might think deeply about how he should respond to feedback while also being careful to appear open and accepting.
