How accurately do you think these exercises evaluate self-concept and self-esteem? How do self-concept and self-esteem influence your self-identity? How do self-concept, self-esteem, and self-identity differ?

When it comes to accuracy, self-esteem and self-concept are always subjective. They describe how a person feels about him/herself.; which could be true or not true to reality. In essence, I definitely think that these exercises had helped me analyze and evaluate myself in a very concise manner; where I totally agree with the results. However, after completing these assessments, I could see true for myself and able to focus on knowledge that I can apply on a particular dimension.

Self-concept and self-esteem influence your self-identity the following way. For instance, if a person is looking for answers to a question: i.e. “Who am I?’ and the attainment of self-concept. Failure to do this results in role diffusions or uncertainty of identity.

Self-concept is an accumulation of knowledge to an individual’s self when it comes to values, goals, beliefs, physical traits and other factors. It does start at an early age and it gets more integrated as you get older. Meanwhile, Self-esteem refers to the extent on how we see or value ourselves. Also self-esteem is usually developed from an early age. As a kid if your family and friends praise you, gives you affection, having trustworthy friends, will most likely help you develop a very high self-esteem. On the other hand self-identity relates to self-image and can be described as an individual’s capacity for self awareness and reflection. Therefore, this term is commonly used to show the characteristics that make an individual unique.
