meh. your standard psychology textbook, nothing special about it, nothing particularly good or bad. I found I could get by in my class without reading it.

I enjoy Personality Psychology, but this text? Ugh. It has its moments, but for the most part it reads like stero instructions. Glad to be done with it and almost done with the class!

Bought this for class. The book was not required as the chapters were given to us online. I choose to buy the book so I would have it for future use/reference and am glad I did.

“E. Tory Higgins (1987) suggests that self-knowledge encompasses three major domains: the actual self, the ideal self, and the ought self. The actual self consists of your representation of the attributes that someone (yourself or another) believes that you actually possess. The ideal self consists of your representation of the attributes that someone (yourself or another) would like you, ideally, to possess = that is a representation of hopes, aspirations, or wishes. The ought self consists of your representation of the attributes that someone believes you should or ought to possess - that is, a representation of duties, obligations or responsibilities. Discrepancies between the actual/own self and ideal selves lead to experiences of dejection-related emotions, such as sadness, disappointment and shame.” 2 likes
