Personality and your self-concept
Developing self-concept. Where do you start? First, the basics: what does 'developing self concept' actually mean?
In simple terms, developing self concept starts by analysing what you understand about yourself. Self concept is about your perceived abilities and social skills, your body image and your thinking.
In developing self-concept, you have to step outside of yourself and understand how others see you. Consider the role of your personality in developing self-concept. Have you analysed your personality self-concept to make sure it's accurate? Your personality self-concept may build or destroy your self-confidence.
Does your personality self-concept include terms such as neat freak, control freak or procrastinator? Such a self-concept differs markedly from a self-concept describing you as reliable, practical or innovative. These self-concept development ideas relate to your personality.
Does it matter how you describe yourself? Yes. Your self-concept influences your ability to answer job interview questions. Your self-concept and self-theory influence the work you seek. Your personality self-concept even influences the type of relationships you attract.
There are many activities that help in developing self-concept. Activities for developing self-concept should include a comprehensive personality inventory.
How can you describe your personality when developing your self-concept? It's easy. We give you lots of practical examples for developing self-concept. I also tell you how, by using the Myers Briggs Type Personality Inventory, (MBTI), I clarified my self-concept and dramatically increased my self-confidence. By developing self-concept through a structured programme, you can let yourself shine.
