September 17, 2010 From last time Self concept arises from socialization and cognitive development Sense of self requires sense of distinctiveness from and connectedness with others Autism Deficit in an ability to connect with others One description: no “theory of mind” (understanding that others have a mind like one’s own) Typical manifestations: Trouble with both verbal & non-verbal communication Difficulty/inability to develop relationships (e.g. reciprocate emotions, share interests) Restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior/interests Constructing a Self Fluidity The “situated self” We respond to different situations with different behaviors Identities are “enacted” – determined by social networks, identity support, and opportunities. But the above are affected by how we organize our identities (i.e. what is most salient about us?) We dislike & avoid inconsistencies in identities Once we settle on a strong self-concept, we try to maintain it.

    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.
