Chapter 9: Communication and Self Concept Describe the attitudes/beliefs/values model of the self? How does each relate to self- concept? The self is: the sum total of who you are, a process, and formed and sustained through communication (roommate comments, etc.) It is an every changing system of perspectives. [ABV model]: Self has a set of attitudes (favorable or unfavorable, like/dislikes, easily changed), Beliefs (the ways structure reality, can change but not as easily), and values (right or wrong, good/bad, cannot change easily at all). Models: the 3 components are Material Self : which is the physical representation, Social Self: self in interactions with other people, Spiritual self: General internal values, morals and beliefs. What are the three components of self according to William James? How is each expressed? Material self, social self, and spiritual self. What is the difference between self-concept and self-esteem? Self Concept: your description of who you think you are , how you describe what you are Self Esteem: How you evaluate who you are , perception of your skills, appearance, and abilities (based on comparison). How does a self concept develop through interaction with others? Who we are is based on communication with growing up. Not born with a self, develops through interaction with world, how others respond. Interaction with others, association with groups, scripts and roles, self-labels, and personality. What are the four attachment styles? How do they develop? How do they relate to self-concept? Parents communicate who we are by attachment styles, which are patterns of parenting that teach us how to view ourselves and personal relationships. 1. Secure : What my parents are! :) 2. Fearful : negative view of love/relationships 3. Dismissive : caregivers are uninterested (not worthy and unnecessary) 4. Anxious/Ambivient : caregivers are inconsistent (loving then not loving)
