2gnōME ("to know me") is a feedback platform that helps discover how the way we see ourselves compares to the way trusted peers actually see us. You get awareness that matters in real life.

We know that it's really hard to get reliable feedback from people you trust, and so we solved for this challenge. Our methodologies and visual storytelling quantify what you are good at and what you are not, letting you make the decision if and where it makes sense to improve. The service is free and 100% confidential.

As of now, 1,569 people have become a little more aware about themselves.

Teachers and talent leaders have an intuitive do-it-yourself interface with maximum flexibility to create engaging awareness experience, and to personalize every step of user experience around your team and assessment topic.

Tribe Interface

We created 2gnōME to make honest, actionable feedback possible. You see what those around you see. You know, the good and the bad. Feedback from trusted peers on the stuff that matters in real life.

The social nature of giving and receiving feedback is based on transparency, voluntary action and science. You simply get a rare opportunity to gain a different perspective on yourself to verify your intuition and improve where it makes sense.

The simple fact is that we don’t know ourselves as well as we think we do. That's because we tend to overestimate our positive abilities and underestimate our flaws - a phenomenon known as illusionary superiority. The best way to close this gap is with reliable feedback.

But this kind of feedback is hard to come by. Self-assessments, as the name implies, only show what you say about yourself. Asked directly, friends don't want to hurt our feelings. Without anonymity, peers don't want to bring on a confrontation. And "professional" review tools are expensive, ineffective and uncomfortable.

Enter 2gnōME. Our approach - and the underlying technology platform - fuses social dynamics with established behavioral theory & market research to:

  • Formulate a clear picture of skill strength, benchmarked to any team or broader population
  • Provide learning and improvement ideas, in-context to individual results


Imagine you wanted to see if you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur. Our experts created 21 typical situations that an entrepreneur can expect (e.g., working with people, facing uncertainty, making decisions, problem solving, etc.). For every question, you select an answer choice that best represents your likely action or outcome.

Your answers establish a baseline of your self-ranking (youSAY) and self-assessment (answersSHOW). Everything is confidential and in-context to your team or a broader population.

For maximum truth, connect with peers whose opinion matters to you.  Peers answer the same questions but asked about you. 100% confidential because you know who you asked for feedback, but you don't know who responds or what they say. Conversely, peers don't see your answers or results. The whole thing is privately tailored to you, there is no wall-posting or auto-sharing of any kind.

Grounded in Science
Much of our research and development goes into synthesizing science and social dynamics, to offer an authentic user experience to measure intangibles that matter in real life. Our product is awareness, for hard-to-measure skills and qualities.
