George Mead developed the Stages of Self in Sociology. This is a

theory of Social Behaviorism to explain how social

experience develops an individual's personality.

The "self"is the part of an individual's personality that is

composed of self-awareness and self image. The self concists of two

parts. The "I" and the "me".

The I, is basically the way we see ourselves.

The Me is how we think others see us.

The I and Me are a dual perspective with the subject (I) doing

the viewing, and the object (me) being viewed.

Its all about balancing our individuality out with what society

wants us to do.
