    • Social Psychology
    •  There are three types of selves people try to give off using self-presentation techniques Authentic self- an image of ourselves that is consistent with the way we view ourselves (our real self) Ideal self- a public image of ourselves that is consistent with the way that we wish we were (our ideal self) Tactical self- a public image that is positive and favorable-- whether it is authentic or ideal-- usually we do this by claiming to have attributes consistent with what others want us to be.
