  9. 9. Ideal Self. <ul><li>Who we role-model ourselves on – or want to be like. Examples…celebrities, heroes…… </li></ul><ul><li>The reality ‘gap’ between our ‘self-image’ and our ‘ideal-self’ is likely to be the measure of our self-esteem. </li></ul>
  10. 10. And remember the structure of your answers: <ul><li>Each paragraph: </li></ul><ul><li>P </li></ul><ul><li>E </li></ul><ul><li>E </li></ul>
  11. 11. And remember…… <ul><li>Adapt your knowledge of what we’ve studied to the question. </li></ul><ul><li>Use examples from real life, as well as names (with dates). </li></ul><ul><li>Revise for the exam! </li></ul>
