One’s self-concept (also called self-identity) is a collection of beliefs about oneself. Generally, 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, consistent, and currently applicable to one’s attitudes and dispositions. Self-concept also differs from self-esteem. Self-concept is a mental or descriptive observation of one’s self (e.g. “I am a fast runner”), while self-esteem is evaluative and opinionated (eg “I feel good about being a fast runner”).
This module looks at how we perceive ourselves and how we behave in given circumstances. We look individually and as a group to how we witness a situation for example a traffic accident, and how we respond to that.
