Self-System 04/15/2014
Three Aspects of Self-System
Ideas individuals have about themselves in regard to personality traits, attributes
Self-esteem (or self-image)
Positive or negative feelings about self
Who one is, where one has come from, where one is going
Adolescent Transitions and Identity Development
Can imagine “possible self”
Increase in “future orientation”
Recognition that way people act and think can conflict
Physical changes
Changes in social roles open up new opportunities
Must make decisions
Developmental Changes in Self-Definition
Move from concrete to abstract evaluation
Make higher-order generalizations about self
Distinguish between actual, ideal, and feared selves
Much more susceptible to distortions (if you are not a very good evaluator of yourself)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
