For this assignment, you are to ask yourself the question, “Who Am I?” After a period of
significant thought on the subject (i.e., some serious soul-searching), you will need to come up
with a list of ten different attributes about yourself. For example, you may list some positive
things, like “I am intelligent” or “I conform to social norms.”
You may also list some negative
things, like “I am not intelligent,” or “I deviate from social norms under certain conditions.” The
object of your list is to be honest with yourself. Do not try to paint a picture of your ideal self.
Instead, try to paint a picture of your real self. Make sure to identify the major attributes about
yourself on your list, both good and bad. Keep in mind that the overall goal of your list is to be
as honest as possible. From your list, develop a paragraph or two for each of the ten
characteristics you have identified about yourself. Make sure to explore why it is you think a
characteristic is good or why you think a characteristic is bad.
Also make sure to try and identify
who or what may have influenced the development of each characteristic. For all of the ten
characteristics, identify the ones you would like to change, and also identify the characteristics
you do not want to change. Make sure to give a full and detailed explanation for why you would
want to change or not change certain characteristics. Be aware that in order to obtain the
maximum number of points for this assignment, you must fulfill all of these requirements!
