“Who am I?”


“Who am I?”

You learned that each of us has an entire repertoire of self-concepts instead of just one, and that within this repertoire we attach different levels of importance to
the various self-concepts. We present a self to others according to the situation we are in.

This is a two-part assignment. In the first part you explore your self-concept collection by completing a short exercise in which you identify words that you use to
describe yourself in response to the question “Who am I”? In the second part you respond to five questions relating to your self-reflections.

1. Part One. Fill in the blanks in the Many Me’s questionnaire at the end of this assignment. There are five dimensions of self that are covered. Report your

c. How were or are other people important to developing your most important self-concepts?
d. How have your images of self changed over the last five years?
e. Have you ever had your self-concepts challenged?
