An important phenomenon of self is self-serving bias. We usually think about ourselves favorably; and therefore tend to accept the credit when things go our way and place credit on others when things do not go our way. Self-presentation is another interesting theory. It emphasizes how an individual modifies his or her mannerism, behavior, appearance, and attitude to create a favorable impression on others. As you have learned, self-presentation varies depending on the culture, but what about the online environment? Online learning, shopping, and personal home Web pages are just a few areas where an individual’s presence is viewed.
Compare and contrast self-serving bias and locus of control? Provide an example of a situation in which you encountered an individual (no names) engaged in self-serving bias.
Explain how would the theory of self-presentation fit in an online (basically global) environment. Explain your views of the effects of culture on self-presentation and if that effect is diminished in an online environment.
