Self-concept

One's self-concept is a collection of beliefs about oneself. Self-concept embodies the answer to "Who am I?". Self-concept is distinguishable from self-awareness, which refers to the extent to which self-knowledge is defined and applicable to one's attitudes and dispositions. Self-concept differs from self-esteem: self-concept is a cognitive or descriptive component of one's self, while self-esteem is evaluative and opinionated. Self-concept is made up of one's self-schemas, interacts with self-esteem, self-knowledge, the social self to form the self as a whole, it includes the past and future selves, where future selves represent individuals' ideas of what they might become, what they would like to become, or what they are afraid of becoming. Possible selves may function as incentives for certain behaviour; the perception people have about their past or future selves relates to their perception of their current selves. The temporal self-appraisal theory argues that people have a tendency to maintain a positive self-evaluation by distancing themselves from their negative self and paying more attention to their positive one.

In addition, people have a tendency to perceive the past self less favourably and the future self more positively. Psychologists Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow had major influence in popularizing the idea of self-concept in the west. According to Rogers, everyone strives to reach an "ideal self". Rogers hypothesized that psychologically healthy people move away from roles created by others' expectations, instead look within themselves for validation. On the other hand, neurotic people have "self-concepts, they are afraid to accept their own experiences as valid, so they distort them, either to protect themselves or to win approval from others."The self-categorization theory developed by John Turner states that the self-concept consists of at least two "levels": a personal identity and a social one. In other words, one's self-evaluation how others perceive them. Self-concept can alternate between one's personal and social identity. Children and adolescents begin integrating social identity into their own self-concept in elementary school by assessing their position among peers.

By age 5, acceptance from peers affects children's self-concept, affecting their behaviour and academic success. The self-concept is an internal model that uses self-assessments in order to define one's self-schemas. Features such as personality and abilities, occupation and hobbies, physical characteristics, etc. are assessed and applied to self-schemas, which are ideas of oneself in a particular dimension. A collection of self-schemas makes up one's overall self-concept. For example, the statement "I am lazy" is a self-assessment. Statements such as "I am tired", would not be part of someone's self-concept, since being tired is a temporary state and therefore cannot become a part of a self-schema. A person's self-concept may change with time as reassessment occurs, which in extreme cases can lead to identity crises. According to Carl Rogers, the self-concept has three different components: The view you have of yourself How much value you place on yourself What you wish you were like Researchers debate over when self-concept development begins.

Some assert that gender stereotypes and expectations set by parents for their children affect children's understanding of themselves by age 3. However, at this developmental stage, children have a broad sense of self they use words such as big or nice to describe themselves to others. While this represents the beginnings of self-concept, others suggest that self-concept develops around age 7 or 8. At this point, children are developmentally prepared to interpret their own feelings and abilities, as well as receive and consider feedback from peers and family. In adolescence, the self-concept undergoes a significant time of change. Self-concept changes more and instead, existing concepts are refined and solidified. However, the development of self-concept during adolescence shows a “U”-shaped curve, in which general self-concept decreases in early adolescence, followed by an increase in adolescence. Additionally, teens begin to evaluate their abilities on a continuum, as opposed to the "yes/no" evaluation of children.

For example, while children might evaluate themselves "smart", teens might evaluate themselves as "not the smartest, but smarter than average." Despite differing opinions about the onset of self-concept development, researchers agree on the importance of one's self-concept, which influences people's behaviors and cognitive and emotional outcomes including academic achievement, levels of happiness, social integration, self-esteem, life-satisfaction. Academic self-concept refers to the personal beliefs about their academic skills; some research suggests that it begins developing from ages 3 to 5 due to influence from parents and early educators. By age 10 or 11, children assess their academic abilities by comparing themselves to their peers; these social comparisons are referred to as self-estimates. Self-estimates of cognitive ability are most accurate when evaluating subjects that deal wi
