Psyc1004 The Social Self
Hello Sustang. Certainly. Impression management is where an individual constantly changes their personality in their interactions with others.
Good Afternoon Lady S. Thank you for enlightening us. I am sure our audience appreciate the knowledge shared. Now, Can you explain what is impression management?
Ok. Not sure I understand. Can you further elaborate?
Similarly, a person would create, modify and act out a personality that they figure best represent them in a particular interaction/setting.
Of course. I will liken impression management to a chameleon. A chameleon changes its appearance to suit its environment.
Yes. So it's about presenting the 'best' version of your self that suits the environment and audience you are interacting with.
Sustang, to go a bit further and state this can be done by self-enhancement, self-awareness and self-monitor.
Oh !I got it. You mean that impression management is similar to when an actor perform different roles, and at each performance he does his best interpretation to win over the audience.
