PSY 150 Self Analyses

I am a young woman trying to figure my life out. Compared to extreme stories I have heard over the years, I do not think I should say I have had a “hard life”, but I have absolutely over-come many challenges over the years. With that said, I could not have imagined a few years ago that I would be where I am today, following my dreams with an awesome support system behind me. I am finally learning to grab life by the horns, and go for my dreams.
I have done some soul searching, and have narrowed down my best and worst personality traits. The first characteristic that I want to focus on is my lack of talent. Yes there are things I am good at, but nothing that really makes me stand out in a crowd. My father’s side of the family is full of talented people; however, my mother’s side has other strong suits. So you would think it would stand to reason I would have talents busting from my seams. Unfortunately, that is not the case. My father did try and push me to do and try new things, but if I said no my mother didn’t force me into it. That seems to me to have come from me being an only child, and my father worked all the time. So I spent most of my time with my mother, just her and I; which is great I would not change that for the world, it made us very close. I do look back, and wish that I had found a good thing to hold on to, nurture and really create a skill out of.
I would also like to discuss some traits that I love about myself. I am very secure and resilient. I have had a few troubles in my life, but I have come through them with flying colors. Some I would not like to discuss, but I will touch on a few of them. When I was eighteen I found out I was expecting. Awkwardly, I was in a bad relationship, but I was going to do the best I could with my circumstances. About a week into knowing of my situation I started to feel a little off. I knew right away something was wrong, but I had not told anyone

    SELF DEVELOPMENT. 1.0 Introduction. Peter Drucker (1955) postulates that “Development is always self-development. Nothing could be more absurd than for the enterprise to assume responsibility for the development of a man. The responsibility rests with the individual, his abilities, his efforts”. In essence, in the eyes of a manager, the quote from Drucker boils down simply to “What self- development do I need?” What necessary knowledge and skills do I need, and what standards do I need to…

    Cooley’s concept of the “looking-glass self” contains three elements. First, we imagine how we appear to those around us. Second, we interpret others’ reactions to us. Third, we develop a self-concept from those reactions. The self-concept development begins in childhood, but it is a lifelong, ongoing process. That means that a student in a new college setting will experience different things that affect one’s self-concept. For example, a student who constantly arrives late to class and is greeted…
