The present study proposes to verify the viability of Johari's window in a two-people meeting. Methodologically the study comprised the following stages: comprehension of the theoretical model of Johari’s window establishment of criteria for the accomplishment of an interview following the reference; accomplishment of an interview with a client that do not know the reference; analysis and interpretation of the results through Johari’s window. The results allowed the authors to analyze the interviewer and interviewee behavior during the interview. They also verified the amount that it is unknown about the other, through what he/she allows to he revealed and analyzed the way that a person uses to reveal his/her own personality. The window makes it easier to visualize the manner that people reveal themselves.
