Self-concept Usually people do not spent most of their time on thinking about themselves

Self-concept Usually people do not spent most of their time on thinking about themselves and who they are. When it comes to the point when somebody is questioning their abilities or roles or anything else related to their self-concept people might start to take a deeper look. How you think and feel about yourself including tendencies, preferences and habits, hobbies, skills has an impact on how you view others. Let’s have a closer look on the idea of self-concept.

Self-concept The recognized social psychologist Roy Baumeister refers the selfconcept reflecting:

Self-concept The recognized social psychologist Roy Baumeister refers the selfconcept reflecting: "The individual's belief about himself or herself, including the person's attributes and who and what the self is". An interesting approach stems from Carl Rogers. He allocates 3 components to a self-concept 1. 2. 3. Self-image - The view you have of yourself Self-esteem - How much value you place on yourself Ideal self - What you wish you were really like The European Commission support for the production of this presentation does not constitute endorsement of the contents which reflects the views only of the authors, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein

Self-concept Did you now that … … how you see yourself (self-image) does not

Self-concept Did you now that … … how you see yourself (self-image) does not necessarily reflect the reality. Often it does not. … who you think you are is learned (aha…your parents) and nothing inherent. … self-esteem describes the extent to which we like ourselves. It can change quickly in uncertain or anxiety-arousing situations. How do you think you would feel next to a dressed up, super smart guy while waiting for your job interview? … young people tend to describe themselves more in terms of personal traits (impulsive, emphatic …). The older we get, the more we define ourselves by our social roles (housewife, professor…). … some people experience more incongruence between their ideal self and their selfimage, others less.

Identity As we saw earlier, the construction of a self-concept happens on different levels,

Identity As we saw earlier, the construction of a self-concept happens on different levels, e. g. , spiritually, physically, socially, religiously, emotionally. Creating a self-concept is a social process. As such the ideas of selfconcept and identity are correlated. Whereas the self-concept can be understood as personal identity, people can also identify with beliefs, qualities or expressions of a group. Regarding intercultural issues, Luoma (2005) posits: “Individuals undergo self- and cultural identity transformation in order to achieve understanding, harmony and balance within themselves and their environment, and in their connection with others. “ “Cultural identities are negotiated, co-created, and reinforced in communication with others. “ The European Commission support for the production of this presentation does not constitute endorsement of the contents which reflects the views only of the authors, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein

Identity Now you are asked to take action: Think about social and cultural identities

Identity Now you are asked to take action: Think about social and cultural identities – can you name any? How are they relevant from a cultural perspective? A little help: you might consider age identities, gender identities, national identities etc. The European Commission support for the production of this presentation does not constitute endorsement of the contents which reflects the views only of the authors, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein

Synopsis • You have heard more about self-concept and identity. Try to reflect on yourself: which values, beliefs and attitudes , which are usually not questioned, did you learn during childhood and were “sold” to you as truths by adults. How about your attitudes relevant to intercultural competences , such as respect, empathy, openmindedness, curiosity, risk-taking, flexibility and tolerance of ambiguity? • Now that you learned so much about feedback and its cultural relations, you should be able to: – reflect on you own self-concept and (cultural) identity – consider those especially in multicultural environments and for your daily work The European Commission support for the production of this presentation does not constitute endorsement of the contents which reflects the views only of the authors, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein
