According to Rogers, people need to feel, experience and behave in ways which are consistent with their self-image and which reflect what they would like to be like, their ideal-self (Saul McLeod 2014). The closer their self-image and ideal-self are to each other, the more consistent or congruent they are. For Carl Rogers, a person who has high self-worth has positive feelings and confidence about him or herself (Saul McLeod 2014). They confront challenges in life, accept failure and unhappiness at times, and is open with people. Rogers believed feelings of self-worth developed when interaction with others.
GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS OF EXISTENTIALISM 1. Essence to be kept after Existence The term existentialism comes out of the description that it is only a person’s being along with his personal and specific life happenings for which this life has got a meaning. Existentialism claims that a person exists or lives, rather than having essence, that each and every individual experiences life from a different perspective and their lives are only understandable with the view of their responsibilities and commitments. “Who am I?” is the most common question asked by of the existentialists. This question is rather more unique as well as mysterious which emphasizes the personal life of an individual instead of the impersonal side.
Substance dualism is a particular philosophy which Descartes takes a stance on. Descartes argues that two substances (mind and body) exist separately and it is evident from great distinction between the two. Spinoza agrees mind and body are different, but not to the extent that they are two separate substances (Def. 3). He explains that if mind and body were two existing substances, they would be so different that they could not interact (Prop.2).
We think of masks as impersonations: habits we acquire, personality traits we show, and people we try in vain to become. Yet Doniger asserts that “masks” are not what we use to cover up who we truly are, because we possess no genuine or default self, no “monolithic core”. “Masks” are not cover-up impersonations but instead self-impersonations, for our “self” is comprised of these masks. In other words, a mask is not a consistently weathering veneer that may be scraped off to expose an invariable interior. It is a veneer that covers a body of veneers, so that one mask is no more constant or genuine than
Affective models of self-esteem assume that self-esteem develops at an early age and is characterized by two types of feelings. One of these feelings which is call feelings of belonging is rooted in social experiences and the other which is feelings of mastery is somewhat more personal in nature. Belonging is the feeling that one is unconditionally loved and valued, not for any particular quality or reason but simply for who one is. A sense of belonging gives people a secure base in life. It gives them the feeling that no matter what happens, they are valued and respected (Rogers & Dymond, 1954).
Another very important factor that influences development of self-esteem is the feedback we receive from the significant persons in our life-parents, siblings, elders, family, teachers etc. Self-confidence, on the other hand, is influenced by factors like interest, motivation, previous experience, cultural background etc. Self-confidence and self-esteem are interdependent …high self-confidence may help to develop high self-esteem and vice versa. For purposes of this peer assessment, despite being aware that self-esteem and self-confidence are

According to some sociologists and psychologists, identity potentially has two interpretations. Identity is interpreted in a public sense and then also in a personal sense. The personal identity is more about your own inner thoughts and feelings and the perception you have of yourself which is not shared with society.

Collective consciousness is a set of beliefs, ideas and traditions within a certain society. With its definition, it can be said that the term is etched in society’s culture since its members share some traits and characteristics with one another. For example, as Filipinos, we are known to value our families greater than those in western countries because we don’t leave our parents when we reach 18. Besides this, a good example of collective consciousness is the Bayanihan spirit where there is communal unity and camaraderie. Back then, it was often referred to as the act where members of a community would help families move by moving their whole house.
