Self Consistency: A Psycho-Social Perspective

Pallavi Bhatnagar (Author)
Synopsis The messages and perceptions of the 'significant others' regarding one's self are internatlized in the childhood and then become the guiding cues to all his self perceptions later . The driving force to maintain a coherence in the internal dynamic organization, as well as behavioral manifestations over time and situations is the keynote of personality integration. It is this need for self consistency which answers for the predictability of one’s behaviour. Plenty has been said felt about the role of family in the shaping of the self. In the present book, the author makes an attempt to uncover the salience of family, both in terms of structure and size in the 'stability of the self concept. The Indian society, which still identifies its family in strong affectional lineage of the lineage of the closeknit joininess and conventional sex typology has a lot of offer to the understanding of self consistency. The present volume thus brings to the force the independent, as well as, interactive effect of family structure, family size,, sex and field dependence-inndependence of self consistency. The inner manikin of self which controls almost all overt behaviour is also dependent for its consequence and integrity upon some variables. This is the amazing fact explored in this volume. The book will find among its readers undergraduate and postgraduate students of Psychology of personality, professionals absorbed in research on Psychology of the Self and any one with the intriguing inquisitiveness to understand the why of the complex phenomena-the exterior calm surface of congruity and consistency in the self with the undercurrents of diversities and conflicts.
