Self-concept which can also be considered as self-construction, self-identity, self-perspective or self-structure is an assembly of beliefs about oneself. These concepts include areas like academic performance, gender identity, sexual identity and racial identity. Usually self-concept personifies the answer to who a person really is.Self-concept is a combination of a person's self-schemas, which interacts with self-esteem, self-knowledge, and the social self to form the self as whole. The past, present, and future selves are all included. The future selves represent individuals' ideas of what they might become, what they would like to become, or what they are afraid of becoming. Possible selves may act as motivation for certain behavior.The
So now at an older age, we have a conscious self that has difficulty expressing itself with any confidence. If the social aspects of the child’s upbringing suffered similar insults, the emotional maladaptation may be joined by a lack of confidence in the other attributes of a child’s growth. A lack of self-confidence in his/her own abilities may develop and consequently, a poor sense of self-esteem. While this may or may not be accurate, it must not be forgotten that the opposite is just as likely. If the child’s caretakers are able to accommodate a child’s natural abilities and provide appropriate and accurate positive feedback, a healthy understanding of social inferences – social responsibility and social regulation might occur. Barring any relevant negative biological influences, any positive – or negative – acceptance of self may be the likely outcome of this positive upbringing (Craig & Dunn, pp. 234-235).
What affects our self-concept? A self-concept is our perception of who we are, it’s the core of our existence. A self-concept can be anything about us that stands out in our mind, our ideas about every facet of our selves. Our hope in our future is shaped by our environment but who we can become is a part of our concept, our personal traits are a part of our concept. We want to know if we have a purpose in life and if we are sure that we do what is it? Our self-concept is also how we define ourselves, it’s why we live, it’s our friends and family, it’s our dreams, it’s our past, it’s constantly being shaped and reshaped, our self-concept is as fluid as a river and who we were yesterday is not who we are today or who we will be tomorrow. Our self-concept can also include our physical attributes, the things we have, and who we compare ourselves to. “Individuals’ self-concepts include their sense of who and what they are and are multifaceted entities that encompass the traits, physical attributes, material possessions, beliefs, and goals that individuals use to characterize themselves (Parent, Talley, Schwartz, & Hancock, 2015).”
Confidence and self-esteem can be affected when a person receives negative input. Children develop positive self-esteem when they feel good about themselves and when they feel valued. They need to have the opportunities to develop positive relationships and participate in a range of activities, which will in turn impact on their social and emotional development. Where children do not have these opportunities, or are unable to find out about themselves and develop their communication skills through social activities, their confidence and self-esteem will be affected. This will also have an impact on their learning as they will be less likely to attempts tasks when they do not have confidence in their abilities.
Self-concept refers to the awareness of an individual’s identity as a person. It is how a person views oneself terms of status and value. Reece (2015) defines self-concept as everyday ideas, information, truths, and opinions that people have about themselves. A consistent self-concept is identified as a product of experiences. It is the individual’s overall perceptions of his or her abilities, as well as his or her behavior and personality. The three key dimensions of the rogerian self-concept were studied by Mcleod (2008) and these are self-image, self-esteem, and the ideal self. Self-image refers to perceptions of the self with regard to appearance. Self-esteem refers to lovability and self-worth and the ideal self refers to the kind of self that an
Self-esteem is an individual’s overall and specific positive and negative self-evaluation of oneself. Self-esteem can bring an impact to an adolescent’s life in both a positive or negative way. Self-esteem in adolescents can be affected by various factors, such as socioeconomic status, race, gender, ethnicity and even societal pressure can affect a person’s self-esteem. Adolescents can also have high or low self-esteem in various areas such academic performances, relationships, and even in their social life. Despite adolescents perceive who they are through self-concept, it doesn’t actually mean they would like fully about themselves. Self-concept is defined as an individual’s personal identity or set of beliefs about one is like as an individual. Various perceptions of themselves can determine their self-esteem in the future.
Self-awareness and self-knowledge in relationships What self-knowledge? It can not be bought at the price of effort or practice. Self-knowledge happens by observing yourself in your relationship with your classmates, your teachers and all those around you; it happens when you observe the ways of the other, his gestures, his way of dressing, talking, contempt or flattery, and your reaction; it happens when you observe everything that is happening in you and around you and you see as clearly as you see your face in the mirror. When you look in the mirror, you see yourself as you are, is not it? You may wish to have another head having another form, with a little more hair, a less ugly face, but the facts are there, clearly reflected by the mirror, and you can not sweep them and say, "That I am beautiful! "
Many United States school districts have recently taken steps towards raising students’ values of self-concepts of themselves, or their self-esteem. Most of us correlate negative self-concepts, or low self-esteem, with learning difficulties and social reclusion. Recent psychological research has also discovered that inflated self-concept is correlated to violence, including bullying
Self is defined as, “a person’s essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action”, so it is interesting that often times society seems to place boundaries and limitations on said self, deeming what the appropriate and acceptable sort of “self” is, does and has (Oxford Dictionaries). Granted, to some extent it makes sense that a person’s self would be monitored by society; up to the point that we all must exist in this world together and to the degree that we wish to feel safe and operate in a functioning society, control becomes necessary. However, in many ways, this type of social forbearance and control over who a person chooses to be can become harmful. Over
