How to transform an uncertain quality of the self concept?
This process turns a weak, ambiguous or uncertain quality into a strong basis for who you want to be. Ambiguous qualities indicate there are roughly equal numbers of positive examples and counterexamples.
Overconfidence and self-importance is actually a sign of uncertainty and a shaky self-concept. When we are uncertain, we can create a false self to appear more capable than we actually are. When you know for sure you have ability, you don’t even think about it, you just do it.
This process involves transforming and recategorizing counterexamples as well as examining and tuning up the structure of the positive template and the summary example.
