What is self concept?
Self-Concept is the image, the idea we have developed of ourselves. This means, how we perceive and define ourselves. Our self-concept greatly influences our thinking, feeling, motivation and performance, learning and behavior.
Your Self Concept is literally how you conceive of, or in the literal sense, create your self, your identity. It's by creating your self image that you define who you are for yourself and everyone else.
Our self-concept is the ideas we have about ourselves based on our personal experiences. It is how we organize and think about our memories. It is like a map of the self that acts like a self-fulfilling prophecy.
