In your life how aware are you? Are you aware of something people are not aware of.An example: you go somewhere and talk with people, these two persons want to win their point of view and don't want to see the other persons point of view.
Better to be happy than right.

Generally, when I use the word, "aware", I am also using the conjunction "of". It is hard to say "I am aware" without saying that of which I am aware. In the light of your question, then, I can say that I am sentient-I am aware of myself, my life, my death, my effect on others. I am that I am, in other words. Now, God said those words ("I am that I am"), too. He was saying He was all of awareness. I am not aware of all the universe as is God. But I am aware enough to navigate the universe that God made. I believe that being "aware" is an almost uniquely human quality. I am sure dolphins are aware, as possibly the higher apes are aware.
This has been an odd question to answer. Of what should I be aware that you want us to reveal in our answers? Perhaps you could tell me of what you want me to be aware?

There are those who are aware of themselves and then there are those who are aware of themselves AS others.
The greater the awareness, the more accommodating one becomes of others.
The extent of one's inability to do so manifests in the form of pride or self-praise.
I work with one such person who is my direct superior.
This individual (that I work with) believes that he knows the answer to everything and that he is always right.
As a result he is unable to learn from any one of his subordinates (my co-workers).
And while me and my co-workers have no problem admitting that we need to always learn from each other because we don't have all the answers, our supervisor (who assumes to know it all) never gives us any useful advice.
So we politely nod when he speaks and then we go and do our own thing to get the job done, and yes, our supervisor believes that his advice is what worked and takes credit for the accomplishment.
None of us have to heart to point out to our supervisor that his behavior only reveals his lack of understanding by his inability to accommodate his subordinates, (our) points of view.
So I know what you are talking about, white tiger, when you speak of people who are not aware.
My Boss is not aware, and his pride doesn't allow him to admit it.
But I know that one day he will come around and cringe at the memories of the days when he was not aware.
But that's not my problem, it is his problem.
I'm not interested in his problems, so I just move on, doing my own thing.

Awareness contains all points of view. It makes not one right and the other wrong...it doesn't exclude it includes. The one who is truly aware has no need to prove themselves right because they understand that everyone's perspective just comes from the point of where they're at on their journey.
They may offer pointers to shine a light but know that the other will only look when they themselves are ready to face the Truth.

Yes I think we do too, but as you said we need to be open to that perspective that we can see the same thing two ways and both be right.
For example one person could see a line another see a square and depending on the angle of perspective both are true and correct even though it would be argued no both are two different things and one is correct and the other is wrong.
This isn't for everything of course or maybe we are just not at that point of seeing it does apply to everything.
I think sometimes we can give God a good laugh and that is wonderful to think of. God enjoying seeing us learning new things always, it is a comforting warm feeling.

You're asking an impossible question and that's why people get frustrated, lol.
Answer 1. Yes, I'm aware of all of me - All That Is - so I know I AM GOD ;-)
Answer 2. GOD is infinite and eternally expanding, so - All That Is - cannot be known as an absolute. However, as GOD I know this and I don't need any external influence to confirm this for me.
Answer 3. Yes and No :)

Are you talking about everyone is right, and that there is no wrong answer based upon ones’ point of view, if so, then in essence there is no right answer. Therefore, one can presume the universe that we live in is a place where people continue to share ideas upon ideas timelessly, without being wrong.

this question reminds me of something that i remember my teacher saying
when i was about 5 years old ;
she said to the class " if you don't know something , then ask me "
even today this phrase still troubles me ...
i think she wanted to say " if you're not sure of something , then ask me "
i can only be aware of what i am aware .
