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.
