insight

1. Ability to appreciate the real nature of a situation.
2. Awareness of the nature of one's own psychiatric symptoms with some appreciation of the possible causes or precipitating factors. People suffering from neurotic illnesses usually have considerable insight; those with psychotic disorders are often, by definition, deemed to be lacking in insight.
