1. Three things I significantly learned from the readings:a. I learned that there is no general definition of the “self” that correctly corresponds to everyperson because even the book and the ideas from different disciplines, explanations were not coherentto each other. Therefore, it is possibly depending on the person if how he/she will define his/her self.b. I learned that other people can also define us depending on what they see and on what theypersonally believe but their definitions are violating our own concepts of ourselves. Therefore, if we aredefined by other people, it does not pertain to ourselves but it pertains to our “identity”.c. I learned that we have a “self-concept” or the knowledge of ourselves. It is the ability to haveself-awareness and self-conception where we detect our feelings (emotional) and (mental) thoughts.2. Three things that are still unclear for me:a. It is still unclear for me if we could really define one’s self because before, I do believe that noone could define the “self” of the other and even his/her self. It is because I do believe that only God canexplain the mysteries of everything he has created. Every person has no capacity to explain anything
