For these questions to be answered, we have to understand what self-concept is. Self-concept is a person’s description of who the person thinks he or she is. Basically, it is filtered through our own perceptions of ourselves. 1. Attitudes that I have that create or shape my self-concept: 1) I like to read – I feel this shapes my identity because it has allowed me to learn new words and think interpret things differently. I also create a label of being a intelligent person due to reading any book I can get and exploring more things. 2) I like to sing – I feel this shapes my identity because it allows me to be myself or sociable when I want to be. Actually, when I 'm with friends, I sometimes do become more comfortable. I also create a label of being a “more being myself” person with friends and show my artistic side. 3) I don 't like to speak in front of people – I feel this shapes my identity because it makes me so shy. Being shy makes me feel uncomfortable with any person I meet until I get used to them. Once I get used to them, I will open up and become friends with that person. I also create a label of being a person who doesn 't like to talk unless required to talk. 2. Beliefs that I have that create or shape my self-concept: 1) I believe in God – I love God, but I get confused on some things he does. I never understood why some animals were created.

People that I communicate with that make feel bad about myself: 1) My friend, Yuli Quiroz – My friend sometimes can be very negative. She usually is in a bad mood. She made me feel bad about myself when she said I was smart. She really made it seem like she didn 't want to be my friend anymore. However, I didn 't let it get to me and continue to be myself. Also, she was just a bad mood and didn 't mean it. 6. Roles that I believe describe who I am: 1) I 'm very independent. 2) I 'm competitive. 3) I 'm assertive. 7.
