2 Personal Reflection on the Self Paper It is common for society to place a label on us as individuals. We perceive our environments from both perspective that comes from nature and nurture. This is known as the concept of self. People will respond with a variety of answers that best interprets their characteristic that includes their culture, belief, and their role in society as it involves the social world. Forming a sense of self are the main components that gives our actions, feelings, and thoughts order and purpose. Furthermore, it is something that allows us as individuals to make adjustments to our behavior by looking at our past, what we want to accomplish in the present, and what we want to achieve in the future. The self-concept is the results of events from the past, present, and thoughts of the future that allows me to identify with who I was, am today, and who I want to become. I can continue to study the traits of personality, keep learning about my fears as well as my dreams and ambition in life. Along with how I interact and react to certain elements, environment, and situations, and others around me. The social environment is where the self is accompanied by my behavior and outlook in accordance with what is surrounding me at the moment (work, school, family, church, etc.). Our social world plays a major part and often determines how we actually interact with each other, how we are influenced, and also serve as a guide for our behavior. Some well-known concepts of the self are 1. Self – concept, 2. Self – esteem, 3. Self-efficacy, 4. Self-presentation, and 5. Self-Control. After learning about the different concepts, I have been able to see how each concept relates to who I am, and how I personally perceive myself in society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
