The self-awareness trap refers to the negative correlation between self-awareness and happiness.  The more self-aware someone is, the unhappier studies show that they are.

Self-awareness tends to be an unpleasant mental state.  Because it's unpleasant, we do one of two things to escape from it: Shape up, or ship out.  When we shape up, we reduce the anxiety that comes with self-awareness by improving behavior to meet our standards.  When we ship out, we simply stop being so self-aware.
