The document discusses key aspects of self, including self-concept, self-confidence, and self-image. It defines self-concept as the set of beliefs we hold about ourselves, including our perceived strengths and weaknesses. Understanding self involves gaining insight into one's own thoughts and actions. Self-confidence relates to one's perception of abilities, while self-image is how one perceives themselves.

Self: Introduction
• Have you ever been at a noisy gathering—struggling to have a
conversation over music and the chatter of voices—and yet managed to
hear someone at the other end of the room mention your name? If so,
then you have experienced the “cocktail party effect”—the tendency of
people to pick a personally relevant stimulus, like a name, out of a
complex and noisy environment (Cherry, 1953; Wood & Cowan, 1995).
Even infants who are too young to walk or talk exhibit this tendency
(Newman, 2005). To the cognitive psychologist, this phenomenon shows
that human beings are selective in their attention. To the social
psychologist, it also shows that the self is an important object of our own
attention.
• The self is first and foremost the collection of beliefs that we hold about
ourselves.
• What are our important characteristics? What are we good at? What do
we do poorly? What kind of situations do we prefer or avoid?
Understanding Self
• Self Understanding is the awareness of and
ability to understand one’s own thoughts and
actions.
• To attain the insight into your attitudes, motives,
defences, reactions, weaknesses and strengths.
• It is a subjective sense of the self & a complex
mixture of unconscious & conscious thoughts,
attitudes & perceptions.
Understanding Self: Definition
• Understanding self represents the sum total of
people’s conscious perception of their identity as
distinct from others. It is not a static
phenomenon, but continues to develop & change
throughout our lives. - George Herbert Head
• The understanding self is thinking about what is
involved in being? What distinguish you from
being an object, an animal or different person? -
Richard Stevens
Understanding Self: Importance
• Self-understanding has been recognized as a
key competency for individuals to function
efficiently in organizations.
• It influences an individual’s ability to make
key decisions about self, others around.
• Understanding the self equips individuals with
making more effective career & life choice, the
ability to lead, guide & inspire with
authenticity.
Self Concept
• The set of beliefs that we hold about who we are
is called the self concept.
• It can also be defined as the sum total of an
individual’s beliefs about his or her own personal
attributes.
• It is basically the individuals image of the kind of person
he or she is. Especially included in this are the awareness
of being (What I am) and awareness of function (What I
can do).
• Self concept includes not only our perceptions of what
we are but also what we think, we ought to be and would
like to be. This latter component of the self is called the
ideal self. The ideal self represents the self concept that
an individual would ideally want to posses.

Understanding Self: Importance • Self-understanding has been recognized as a key competency for individuals to function efficiently in organizations. • It influences an individual’s ability to make key decisions about self, others around. • Understanding the self equips individuals with making more effective career & life choice, the ability to lead, guide & inspire with authenticity.
  • 6. Self Concept • The set of beliefs that we hold about who we are is called the self concept. • It can also be defined as the sum total of an individual’s beliefs about his or her own personal attributes. • It is basically the individuals image of the kind of person he or she is. Especially included in this are the awareness of being (What I am) and awareness of function (What I can do). • Self concept includes not only our perceptions of what we are but also what we think, we ought to be and would like to be. This latter component of the self is called the ideal self. The ideal self represents the self concept that an individual would ideally want to posses.
  • 7. Two ways in which WE perceive Ourselves • POSITIVE SELF CONCEPT: People with positive self concept believe in themselves, are confident about their ability to deal with problems, make decisions, feel equal to others, have respect for themselves and expect it from others. These are people who are realistic in their assessment of themselves and can admit to a wide range of feelings, behaviours and needs. • NEGATIVE SELF CONCEPT: If people see themselves as failures and have a negative, pessimistic image of themselves, they will begin to act the part. Negative feelings feed on themselves and become a downward spiral, gradually encompassing all of the people’s thoughts, actions and relationships. People with negative self concepts tend to complain constantly and find it difficult to accept criticism.
  • 8. Self concept includes: 1. Cognitive Aspect, 2. Affective Aspect, & 3. Behavioral Aspect 1. Cognitive Aspect: Self Schema • Self schemas are “cognitive generalizations about the self, derived from past experience, that organize and guide the processing of self-related information” 2. Affective/evaluative Aspect: Self Esteem • “self esteem reflects the perceived difference between an individual’s actual self concept (who I think I really am) and some ideal self image (who I would really like to be).” • William James (1890) expressed the relationship this way. Self esteem= success/pretension (where, Pretension refers to ideals against which individuals assess their actual self image)
  • 9. Behavioral Aspect : Self Perception • Daryl Bem’s (1972) influential theory of Self Perception posits - we observe our behavior and the situation in which it took place, make attributions about why the behavior occurred, and draw conclusions about our own characteristics and dispositions. • In other words, we come to understand ourselves the same way we perceive and understand others.
  • 15. Factors Affecting Self-Concept SELF CONCEPT Factors across the Life Span Physiological Factors Cultural & Life Style Factors Psychological Factors
  • 16. Building up Self Concept • Building up self concept is primary factor of effective personality and behaviour. The four steps to build-up self concept are as follows: 1. Self awareness 2. Self acceptance 3. Self realization 4. Self disclosure
  • 17. Self Awareness • Our attention is sometimes directed outward towards the environment and sometimes it is focused inward on ourselves. • Certain experiences in the world automatically focus attention inwards, such as catching sight of ourselves in the mirror, having our picture taken, or, more subtly, being evaluated by others. • We begin to think of ourselves not as moving actors in the environment but as objects of our own and others’ attention. Experiencing oneself as an objects of our own and others’ attention is called self awareness. • It leads people to evaluate their behavior against a standard (standards for physical appearance, intellectual performance, athletic prowess, or moral integrity) and to set an adjustment process in motion for meeting the standard.
  • 18. Self Acceptance • Having being aware of who we really are, rather than the person we would wish to be, the next step on our journey to self concept is to accept ourselves. • According to Shepard (1979), self-acceptance is an individual's satisfaction or happiness with oneself, and is thought to be necessary for good mental health. • Self-acceptance involves self-understanding, a realistic, though subjective, awareness of one's strengths and weaknesses. It results in an individual's feeling about oneself, that they are of "unique worth".
  • 19. Self Realization • The term self realization means to fulfilment of one's own potential. • It is realizing our inner potentialities. • This step on self concept route involves growth and development motivated from within. • It is a willingness to pursue our ideal-self on our own, to grow and to change because we think it is important.
  • 20. Self Disclosure • Self disclosure is the process of letting another person know what we think, feel and want, that is telling others about ourselves. • It includes all kinds of information: life experiences, personal circumstances, feelings, dreams, opinions and so on. • It involves disclosing our innermost thoughts and feelings. • The final stage towards a mature self concept is how we are going to reveal our ‘self’, and this is where self awareness plays an important role. We need to know ourselves well before we can disclose or reveal anything to others about our ‘real self’ • Research indicates that self-disclosure leads to self- contentment, helps a person to be more perceptive, adaptive, competent, trusting and positive towards others.
  • 21. Self Confidence • A feeling of trust in one's abilities, qualities, and judgement is self confidence. • The belief that you can achieve success and competence. In other words – believing yourself to be capable. • Self-confidence might be in reference to specific tasks or a more wide ranging attitude you hold about your abilities in life. • Both self confidence and self esteem relate to your perception of yourself, the former relates to your perception of your abilities and the latter relates to your perception of your worth or value. • Both concepts are closely related and those with low self confidence will often have low self esteem and vice versa

  • 23. Self Image • Self-image is how you perceive yourself. • It is a number of self-impressions that have built up over time: What are your hopes and dreams? What do you think and feel? What have you done throughout your life and what did you want to do? • These self-images can be very positive, giving a person self confidence in their thoughts and actions, or negative, making a person doubtful of their capabilities and ideas. • Surprisingly, your self-image can be very different from how the world sees you. Some people who outwardly seem to have it all (intelligence, looks, personal and financial success) may have a bad self-image. Conversely, others who have had a very difficult life and multiple hardships may also have a very positive self-image. • Some believe that a person's self-image is defined by events that affect him or her (doing well or not in school, work, or relationships.) • Others believe that a person's self-image can help shape those events. • There is probably some truth to both schools of thought: failing at something can certainly cause one to feel bad about oneself, just as feeling good about oneself can lead to better performance on a project.
  • 24. Self Image (contd.) • It cannot be denied that your self-image has a very strong impact on your happiness, and your outlook on life can affect those around you. If you project a positive self- image, people will be more likely to see you as a positive, capable person. • However, it's important that your self-image be both positive and realistic. • Having a self-image that is unrealistic can be a drawback, whether that self-image is negative OR positive. • Sometimes having an occasional negative thought or criticism about oneself can encourage change, hard work, growth and success. Sometimes having too positive an image of oneself can encourage complacency, underachievement, and arrogance. Finding the balance between feeling positive about oneself but having realistic goals is important.
