Identity and our values

Identity and our values

Identity is mainly concerned with the question: “Who am I?” What does it mean to be who I am?

Identity relates to the values that guide the choices we make (relationships, career, etc.). These choices reflect who we are and what we value.

  1. Finding and developing your personal potentials (those things that the person can do better than other things).
  2. Choosing your purpose in life.
  3. Finding opportunities to implement that potential and purpose.

Psychologists consider that identity development is a question of “finding yourself” by matching your skills with available social roles.

You can be a teacher, a mother or friend. Each has its own sense and assumptions that are internalized as identity.

It continues to develop through our lives. Knowing our identity increases self-esteem and reduces depression and anxiety.

Most of us just incorporate the values of our parents or the dominant cultures (for example, the pursuit of materialism, power, and appearance). This is risky, because these values may not feel authentic and can lead us to live an unfulfilling life.
