Self-Esteem over Logic and Beliefs Columbia College, Missouri Abstract Self-Esteem gives a person the right to value themselves. Our self-esteem sometimes overpowers our logic, and can lead us to act in ways that are not always our own. This paper examines how the following theories; Theory of Cognitive Dissonance, Self- Evaluation Maintenance Theory, Self-Affirmation Theory, Rationalization Trap and Self-Discrepancy Theory impact a person's self-esteem decisions. Where people in different cases come to realize that the choices they have made overpower their superior perfect logic, they have to deal with the consequences that come along with the choices they have made.
Introduction Given that people derive great satisfaction from interpersonal bonds and experience devastation when intimate relationships end, it may be hard to understand why some people voluntarily withdraw from relationships when things appear to be going well (Mearns, 1991). Research has shown that this is the case for people with low self-esteem (LSE) (Murray, MacDonald, & Ellsworth, 1998). Partly stemming from their overwhelming craving for love and acceptance, they are vigilant for signs of rejection (Lamarche & Murray, 2014). Further, after they perceive an interpersonal threat, they adopt self-distancing in order to protect themselves (Murray et al., 1998; Baumeister, Tice, & Hutton, 1989). Ironically, their protective behaviors might eventually bring about the demise of the relationships that they very much fear (Gaucher et al., 2012). Indeed, research has shown that people with LSE experience lower relationship satisfaction in both dating and marital contexts (Sciangula & Morry, 2009; Sacco & Phares, 2001).
I was second grader and departing for America, my friend and I were saying goodbye in front of the airport. He shouted to me in a way that everyone could hea r, just before I got inside, that I have to get into the airplane barefooted. I put my shoes in my carriage as he said. I didn't realize single thing before the man next to me burst into laughter and told me that there is no such rule as being barefooted. My friend always was my best friend as we went to the same school, same church and lived in the same apartment. However, my expectation for the airplane was satisfied as they had a television and I was overwhelmed by its enormous size. Unfortunately, I ate some meats and potatoes in the airplane despite my mom's commandment, "don't eat
By taking the “Self-esteem Inventory” quiz I learned that my sell-esteem is good for the most part, but could use a boost in certain areas. For example, when answering the question “I can make up my mind without too much trouble” I realized this was not like me. More often then not I find myself being indecisive and contemplating choices. This is one thing I could work on to boost my self-esteem. Honestly answering the questions of the quiz made me realize what needs to be changed to improve my overall self-esteem.

I had some mix feelings about this self-esteem inventory since I personally been dealing with depression for over 10 years. I would say that if I took this exam 6 years ago, I would be rated with sever low self esteem due to how I personally viewed myself. I might of appeared on the outside of having high self confidence, but on the inside I was always critical of myself. Since my treatment and changing the way I view myself, my current score for this inventory is 38. This score somewhat surprised me since I thought it would be lower. I did score over 3 on the "lie scale" which I have mix feelings on but being close to the average male score of 40 makes me feel good. With my recovery, I learned how to fight back the old negative views I had
