Self-awareness

The Rav Name:

Hi Rabbi,
Many people are given self-awareness so we have some idea of our strengths and weaknesses and we can usually identify when we fall and what traits we have to fix in ourselves. I’ve noticed that some people seemingly lack any amount of self awareness. They are open about how they have nothing to work on, and they genuinely act as though they have zero sense of what they are doing wrong every day and how their actions impact those around them…. How does Gd expect those people to ever work on their flaws? Are they possibly exempt? And if they are not exempt, it seems unfair to them that they have no idea what to do. It’s not their fault they were created with no self awareness…
Thanks for clarifying!
