com 200 discussion 1

In Chapter 2 of your textbook, Bevan (2020) explains that ideas of self contribute to how and when people interact with others and are influenced by interactions. In other words, ideas of self are created through self-talk and interactions with others, and interactions with others will likely shape future ideas of self. In the following discussion, you will explore your ideas of self and their relation to your interpersonal communication.

Please follow these four steps to write your initial post, which should be 300 to 350 words:

  1. Using and citing Bevan, define self-concept and self-esteem, and connect both to intrapersonal and interpersonal communication.
  2. Complete this Johari Window (Links to an external site.) Based on your results, list five words you used to describe yourself and the five descriptors your friend or family member gave of you. Explore the similarities and differences in the labels in the different windows, and discuss whether or not you were surprised by any of them.
  3. Connect your Johari Window results to what you learned in Bevan on self-concept and self-esteem.
  4. Discuss how you have formed your labels through intrapersonal and interpersonal communication.
