Dialogical Self Approach

The concept of the "Dialogical Self' is the newest development in the scientific thinking on "personality". The preceding theories on the dynamics in the unconscious of Freud and Jung were followed big the "Trait" theories that lead to the "Big Five" test. In the constructive psychology the focus is on uniqueness of every person. Knowing this all Hubert Hermans introduced the notion that the "I" is multiple. A "me" is a space filled with "I positions". The "Self" develops in direct communication with others. It is a "Dialogical Self".
