Self and Society The Self-Origins of self Our biological equipment has been evolutionarily conditioned to receive socialization during key windows of time during our development. Ex) Genie, girl without social interaction until she was 13. The Looking-Glass Self The sense of ourselves that we get from interacting with others. o We are a reaction from what society says we are. “I am who I think, you think I am.” Mead’s Theory of Self Me and Looking glass are the same thing Three stages throughout life: o I The part of our sense of self that is the active doer in the moment o Me The part of our sense of self that we get from interacting with others. Our ‘me’ is informed by how we think others perceive us. This concept is very similar to the Looking-Glass Self. o Generalized Other Through repeated interactions with others and trail-and-error, we learn that there is a collection of rules, norms, roles, ideologies, beliefs, customs, etc. that those around us are using to interpret our actions and design our responses. This concept is very similar to common sense. o Example of mixture between I and me: “I can’t believe what I did last night, what will people think of me?” Self-Concept Our self-concept is a combination of our interactions with others, our life experiences, and our internal interpretations of those interactions and experiences Statuses & Roles Social statuses o A title or position within a social system (mother, doctor, student) Roles o The behavioral expectations associated with a social status
