James describes self-esteem as how we view our self-image, and whether or not we approve of it. The idea of self-esteem is defined by our concepts and how well we like ourselves. It also links in with our inner values which define our ego that was mentioned before. The self-image is further described as being our social roles, body image, and personality traits. The way that self-esteem is derived is by measuring the gap between the ideal self and the self-image. The ideal self is a person's concept of what the perfect person should be, as well as what they see as their full potential (usually a potential that cannot be achieved). This ideal self may be close to a person's self-image, which would mean that this person has a high self-esteem. The greater the difference between someone’s self-image and ideal self, the lower the resulting self-esteem. 10
