Transcript of Self-Concept
- Self-concept is how we think about and evaluate ourselves.
To be aware of oneself is to have a concept of oneself.
Baumeister (1999) provides the following self-concept definition: "the individual's belief about himself or herself, including the person's attributes and who and what the self is".
- Usually around 7 or 8 yrs old children are developmentally prepared to interpret their own feelings & abilities, and feedback they receive from parents, teachers, and peers about themselves.
When does it start?
is a general term used to refer to
how someone thinks about or perceives themselves.
Components of Self-Image
Carl Rogers (1959) believes that the self concept has three different components:
Self image - The view you have of yourself
Self-Esteem - How much value you place on yourself
Ideal Self - What you wish you were really like
This does not necessarily have to reflect reality.
Example. a person with anorexia who is thin may have a self image in which the person believes they are fat.
self image is affected by many factors, such as parental influences, friends, the media etc.
Typically young people describe themselves more in terms of such personal traits, whereas older people feel defined to a greater extent by their social roles
