Self Concept (Entry #1)
Self concept is how we think about and evaluate ourselves. Self- concept is derived
from some factors including personal traits, personal values and place or role in life. Next is
self knowledge, which is explaning our behaviour, predicting our behaviour and predicting
our feelings. I usually acknowledge my understanding towards myself is most likely accurate
but through this lecture, i learn that ouur self explanations and prediction on our behaviour are
often wrong. For example, I plan to finish my assignment today as I want to finish it early
and estimating I will finish after 4 hours, around 10 but unfortunately this plan never works
for me. Something must have always distracting me such as Facebook, Youtube and so on
and I usually finish my assignment I day later or even few days later than what i had planned.
As for predicting our feelings, through lecture I learn that even i as a female could also
mispredict what another female feels. For example, when the lecturer showed us and asked us
on how women feel if asked sexually harassing questions on a job interview, I predicted that
the women will feel angry and disrespect but actually the result is the women will feel fear. In
a nutshell, self predicting behaviour and feelings are not as accurate as I thought it will be.
