Abstract:
Issues concerning the process of self-observation and the development of the observing self in everyday life were examined from behavioral and psychodynamic perspectives. Nine participants first acquired accurate self-observing skills in the laboratory setting based on a training program developed in previous studies. Once participants were able to observe laboratory behaviors accurately, participants self-observed day-to-day activities in the real life settings in which these behaviors occurred for six months. Subsequently, procedures for self-observing everyday life developed from participants experiences. Generalization of self-observation to behaviors participants had not been instructed to self-observe was also investigated. Lastly, the relationship of self-observation to self-awareness was studied.
