An individual does good things for themselves or equivalently “for the sake of [their] thinking part” (1166a).

The person can either take it to heart and help them become a better person at what they are doing, they can just brush it off and not listen to what is said, or thy can listen to it and be hurt and stay hurt by it.

The components of self, as described in the book are, “ . . . self-awareness, self-concept, and self-esteem” (McCornack 39).
