Looking out/Looking in: Chapter 2 study questions 1. What is the Self-Concept?

a) How you frequently view yourself or see yourself. How does it develop? a) It develops through-out your life by what you hear said about yourself and how you see yourself as you doing things. 1. What is the reflected appraisal? “the fact that each of us develops a self- concept that reflects the way we believe others see us.” 2. Ego Booster Exercise: Give an example from your own life when: 1) You were an ego booster to someone : I am an ego booster to my brother when I hang out with him and I ask him to go with me places, b/c I usually don’t ask him to do anything with me, and when he comes with me I talk to him positively. 2) You were an ego buster to someone: I can’t recall and instant when I was an ego buster, maybe sometime in middle school. 3) When someone was an ego booster to you: I went up to Oregon to visit my best friend one year and she showered me/w compliments and since then ive been really talkative and outgoing. 4) when someone was an ego buster to you: I think someone told me I was ugly but that’s all I can remember. 3. What are two types of social comparison? a) Superior or inferior: are we better than someone or worse? b) the same as or different: is what I do accepted or weird? 1. Give an example from your own life when you were affected by social comparison: I used to see people on all my sports teams as superior to me, I saw them all as better than me. I have no idea why. This made me quiet around them and insecure. 2. Read “Cipher in the snow.” What do you think the moral of the story is?: The moral of the story is to not put people down and to push people up so that they don’t do what cliff did or become like him. No one deserves to feel like that or be treated that way. 3. Define the self-fulfilling prophesy. a) “When a person’s expectations of an event, and his or her subsequent behavior based on those expectations, make the event more likely to occur than would have otherwise have been true.” 1. Give an example from your own life when the self-fulfilling prophesy resulted from your expectations of the outcome of the event : I believed I was going to hit a ball to the outfield and I did.  2. Give an example from your own life when the self-fulfilling prophesy resulted from someone else’s expectations of your performance: I think this happened in softball too, someone said “shes going to hit s triple” and I did. 3. What are four ways of changing your self-concept? a) Have a realistic perception of yourself- Don’t say im more beautiful than anyone. b) Have realistic expectations-Don’t say im gonna go out with that guy tomorrow. c) Have the will to change- Don’t think im awesome I don’t need to d) Have the skill to change-Know how to go about doing things.
