Poster Speech Self Concept Presenting Self & Perceived Self Personal Viewpoint Essay


In this assignment, you will demonstrate what you learned in chapters 1 and 2

  1. Self Concept: Your image of who you are… strengths, weaknesses, abilities, and limitations.
  2. Perceived Self: How you see “you.”
  3. Presenting Self: How you present yourself to others.

Your SELF CONCEPT develops in many ways:

  • Looking-glass self: you gain information based on how people (significant others) behave/react toward you.
  • Social comparisons: compare yourself to peers, older siblings, etc.
  • Cultural teachings: parents, extended family, religious leaders…
    • You will speak about your PERCEIVED and PRESENTING selves.
    • You will create a poster board that will serve as a cheat sheet and visual aid to visually present, with words, pictures, or both, how you see yourself and how others see you.


  • Interview friends, family, and coworkers to find out how you present yourself to them.
  • Ask them for words that describe you with examples of why they think this word describes you.
    Ex: “organized” because you always know where everything is in your room and you like to help others around you stay organized.
  • Put these 5-10 words on one side of your poster.


  • Brainstorm for words describing how you see yourself
  • Select examples that help illustrate the above words
  • Add these words to your Perceived Self side of your poster. You can include pictures to illustrate the traits you placed on the board.
    Ex: The word “Studious” with a picture of books or the library. Then you might say “I take my studies seriously and am pursuing a degree in Nursing.”

Just write typical traits of a good 21-year-old girl.

Some words you can use to describe me is: Studious, organized, kind, friendly, impatient, perseverant, enthusiastic, generous, honest, trustworthy, non judge-mental, humble, adventurous, sometimes pessimist.
