Document Summary

There are 3 things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one"s self. Large set of attributes that are linked together: Part i: the self concept: personal dispositions, physical characteristics, preferences (likes/dislikes), and values. : all the beliefs that we have about the self (2)the self-concept is composed of many different selves (roles) E. g. , professor in school, father of family, scientific, etc. Represents different roles that one plays in front of different people. Research suggests that having a complex self-concept is a positive thing; serves as a buffer/protects us for when any single self is threatened or damaged. It is damaging to not have different roles; for e. g. , you could be regarded as a crappy professor, but at least your family loves you (3)some attributes are associated with one self. Messy as a single person, but objective as a scientist (4)some attributes are more basic and enduring across situations/roles.
