Self Consistency: A Psycho-Social Perspective
The messages and perceptions of the ?significant others? regarding one?s self are internalized 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, behavioural manifestations over time and situations in 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 and 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 close knit jointness and conventional sex typology has a lot to offer to the understanding of self consistency. The present volume thus brings to the fore the independent, as well as, interactive effect of family structure, family size, sex and field dependence ? independence of self consistency. The inner mannikin of self which controls almost all overt behaviour is also dependent for its congruence 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 observed in research on Psychology of the Self and any one with the intriguing in-quisitiveness 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.
