Default What Is Identity?

This is very tough for me to describe but I will try my best.

How does someone define themselves? What are the issues of self-definition? Is there a way to accurately or objectively define yourself?

Human beings are socially situated. Without the Other, there is no Self.

By capitalizing Other and Self, what kind of emphasis are you trying to place on them? Rather, explain a bit more in depth for me?

One can define themselves by knowing how they would react to a given situation. Emotions towards controversial topics, thought patterns

Maturity would be a big one. Understanding of yourself is another. If I understand what it is you're asking at least.

Only you yourself can define your personal identity. See: http://www.halo3forum.com/debate-for...-yourself.html

I apologize for giving so basic of answers. I honestly don't really know what it is your asking, or how to answer them any better.

Question reminds me of Anger Management when Jack Nicholson pissed Adam Sandler off like MAD cuz he just kept asking him "Tell me who you are."
She only comes to me in my dreams
