Prepare a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper in which you examine the concept of the self. Address the following items:
- Define the concept of the self in the social world.
- Apply the self to your life, including self-concept, self-esteem, self-efficacy, self-presentation, and perceived self-control. Remember to cite the source(s) you used to define the concepts. The definition of the concepts should be cited; the application of the concepts to your own life will be in your own words and thus, do not require citations.
- Describe at least two social experiences that affected your personal development, most notably the development of your “self.”
- NOTE: Since this assignment is a personal experience paper, it is permissible to write in first person.
Include at least two references in your paper.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
