Adolescents undergo cognitive changes, one example of this is egocentrism. Adolescents become more self-aware and self-conscious. This gives teens the beliefs that how they look is going to be judged by their peers, creating in them the feeling that "everyone will notice" something wrong with them. (45) This can lead the adolescent to have confidence issues and low self-esteem.
This example illustrates a personal fable, which is an adolescent's personal belief that they are special and people cannot fathom things that are happening to them, since they believe their situation to be "unique". Personal fables can also be positive, they can make the individual feel important and can also enhance,"self-esteem and feelings of self-importance." (46)
During adolescents brain structure is enhanced. Neuron endings are sheathed with myelin to allow electrical pulses to travel hundreds of times faster than before. This allows for a much more rapid response and processing of information. Adolescents become more adept in using, "multiple parts of the brain simultaneously and coordinate activity between pre-frontal regions of the brain and other areas." (56)
