Self-consciousness is the consciousness of a subject of himself, in contrast to the other subjects and the world in general. It is a person's consciousness of his interaction with the objective world and the subjective world (psyche), his vital needs, thoughts, feelings, motives, instincts, experiences, and actions. In psychology, self-awareness is a mental phenomenon, a person's consciousness of himself as a subject of activity, as a result of which a person's ideas about self are formed into a mental image of self.
