Self-image is the mental picture, generally of a kind that is quite resistant to change, that depicts not only details that are potentially available to an objective investigation by others (height, weight, hair color, etc.), but also items that have been learned by persons about themselves, either from personal experiences or by internalizing the judgments of others.

Self-image may consist of six types:

  1. Self-image resulting from how an individual sees oneself.
  2. Self-image resulting from how others see the individual.
  3. Self-image resulting from how the individual perceives the individual sees oneself.
  4. Self-image resulting from how the individual perceives how others see the individual.
  5. Self-image resulting from how others perceive how the individual sees oneself.
  6. Self-image resulting from how others perceive how others see the individual.

These six types may or may not be an accurate representation of the person. All, some, or none of them may be true.
