Manifestation of Poor Self Image

“The person we believe ourselves to be will always act in a manner consistent with our self-image.

-  Brian Tracy

“An individual’s self-concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behavior: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change. A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life.

- Dr. Joyce Brothers

How is your self Image?

Is it healthy?

Or you are also a victim of poor self image?

There are a number of ways in which poor self image manifests its self. And it is worth knowing the various manifestations of unhealthy self image. If you do not have any of the symptoms that I am discussing in this section, then accept my ‘CONGRATULATIONS.’ You may have a healthy self image and you are on a fast track to success.

An ‘I don’t care’ attitude

If you look around yourself, you will find people who are unkempt and shabby. There are people who are obese but still never control their diets or take up physical activities. There are those who dress up in a fashion that may be plain stupid or even hilarious. And they show as if they give a damn or don’t care.’ In fact this kind of attitude is adopted by people with poor self-image. They do not really see themselves as decent, acceptable and appreciable individuals. They sub-consciously feel miserable, and to overcome their internal misery, they wear this ‘don’t care’ attitude. These people have accepted themselves as a failure and do nothing to change that.

Indecent behaviour

Making objectionable gestures, using profane language or any kind of indecent behaviour is another manifestation of poor self image. Such people do not see themselves as a part of the civilized society and thus behave in a fashion that is socially unacceptable but definitely consistent with their own self image.

Lack of Assertiveness

People with unhealthy self image do not see themselves worthy enough to have acceptable point of view. Such people will allow others to walk all over them, let themselves be bullied, or let others take advantage of them. They will not be assertive in front of their colleagues, friends and even children. They feel if they assert themselves, they will not be acceptable to others. Such people live a helpless and lonely life, and every time they fail to assert themselves their self-image plunges down further.

Critical and jealous nature

People with low self-image never see themselves as a success, and therefore never succeed. In order to overcome their feeling of failure, they exhibit jealous tendencies towards those who are successful and actually are critical about their success rather than appreciating it. Show them a person who is successful and they will talk about the ‘skeletons in his cupboard’.

Gossip mongers

These whispering Eavesdroppers talk behind your back, causing incredible chaos by criticizing everyone imaginable-family, friends, relatives, co-workers, bosses, and especially strangers. These Busybodies start rumors and put others down. In fact these characters have an extremely low self image and they sensationalize issues about others, thus making their lives miserable and thus deriving a sense of pseudo superiority.

Emphasis on material things and habit of showing off

These exaggerators are people with poor self image, who will spend a fortune on trendy cloths, jewels, cars. They are loud-mouth about their exploits and achievements that may even sound outlandish. They always want to be centre stage, and admired by other people. Since they feel low inside, they try to cover it up by looking great outside. However, such show-off end up as the objects of contempt and a laughing stock for others.
