A Socioanalytic Interpretation of the Public and the Private Selves
- 993 Downloads
This chapter concerns the relationship between the public self and the private self as seen through the lens of a particular perspective on personality theory— socioanalytic theory (Hogan, 1983). The chapter is organized in three sections. The first offers a perspective on the relationship between the public and the private self. In the second, we describe a set of research problems that emerge from the analysis presented in the first section. Finally, we suggest some caveats regarding the entire enterprise.
