Questions of Identity
Lately I have been wrestling with questions of identify, specifically as the identity refers to the self-concept. Self-concept is a multi-dimensional construct that refers to an individual’s perception of “self” in relation to any number of characteristics. (http://en.wikipedia.org/self-concept). For a variety of reasons my identity has been under some stress lately and this has led me to spend time during the course of the day to simply think about my self-concept. To attempt to answer, or perhaps to attempt to simply ask correctly, the old question of “who am I”. I’d love to tell you I have any answer, but I really don’t. I don’t even really have a question yet. I am still in the pre-question stage.
