  • 1. Exam Revision And past questions
  • 2. For instance…………
    • (2) We are often advised to think carefully about our self-presentation in formal situations like interviews. Write about the ways in which one of the following elements of self-concept affect our performance in such situations.
    • Self-esteem
    • Ideal self.
  • 3. Answering this question:
    • Start by defining ‘self-esteem’ in your introduction!
    • How would you define it?
  • 4. Define it as follows:
    • Coopersmith (1967) defined self-esteem as:
    • A personal judgement of your own worth – or how good you feel about yourself.
  • 5. Then explain what formal situations might affect our self esteem?
    • A job interview is the obvious one.
    • What others are there?
  • 6. Then describe what factors might influence our self-esteem:
    • Any guesses?
  • 7. Answer using Dimbleby and Burton (1988).
    • Reactions of others.
    • Comparing ourselves to others.
    • Who we identify with.
    • The roles we play.
    • Explain using examples of formal situations.
  • 8. You could then also explain:
    • How accurate is our sense of self-esteem – is it always correct?
    • How could we ever find out what we’re really like?
    • This might make a good conclusion .
  • 9. Ideal Self.
    • Who we role-model ourselves on – or want to be like. Examples…celebrities, heroes……
    • The reality ‘gap’ between our ‘self-image’ and our ‘ideal-self’ is likely to be the measure of our self-esteem.
  • 10. And remember the structure of your answers:
    • Each paragraph:
    • P
    • E
    • E
  • 11. And remember……
    • Adapt your knowledge of what we’ve studied to the question.
    • Use examples from real life, as well as names (with dates).
    • Revise for the exam!
