You will be presented with a series of questions asking about your views of self. Please answer each question truthfully.
You will see a variety of question types, each with their own instructions. Please review the instructions on each page before answering the questions.
At the end, you will see how your responses align with prior psychological research and the responses of other participants.
One common distinction that psychologists have made for self-models is that of independent versus interdependent. Those with an independent self-model tend to view their individual traits and abilities as essential parts of their selves. Those with an interdependent self-model tend to view their relationships and memberships as essential to their selves.
