OK students, let us move on to Impression Management. Now, who can tell me what Impression Management is?
Health and Family Life
Miss, Impression Management is the process by which we attempt to control the impressions others form of us.
David is such a sweetheart. Every time he speaks to me he is so gentle and romantic, he even brings me flowers. He is a nice, sweet and respectful young man
Oh, so this explains why I have to be motivational whenever I am talking to the members of my Cricket team before a match. I love Cricket and my teammates look up to me because I am their captain. I have to motivate them or we will lose the match.
David and his friends beat me up last Tuesday. He saw me talking to Samantha and he got offended. I know Samantha thinks he is sweet but I wonder what she would think if I told her about what happened. Would she think of me as a weak kid?
When I get on the bus, I ensure to be polite to the bus driver so that he would always think good of me and give me gifts.
Welcome home son, how was school?
Mom and Dad have always thought me to be respectful to all persons. I felt bad about fighting Andy but I had to impress my friends. I hope he understands.
School was Great!
I now understand what I have been doing all this time. I was engaging in Impression Management!
