Self-Concept & Time

"If I watch myself on tape, I'm not only viewing with my self-concept in mind, I'm comparing "me" to my "possible selves," the "me's" I wish to become. Here is where an unbridgeable gap opens up between people: I will never have a sense of anyone else's possible selves, nor they mine." Carlin Flora, "Metaperceptions: How Do You See Yourself?", Psychology Today (published May 2005, reviewed Dec 2011)
