identity

By on / Glossary

The way people see themselves – the groups they feel a part of, the significant aspects of themselves that they use to describe themselves to others. Some theorists distinguish between collective identity, social identity, and personal identity. However, all related in one way or another to a description of who one is, and how one fits into his social groups and society overall. (from http://www.colorado.edu/conflict/peace/glossary.htm)
