    Abstract Self-reporting is a frequently used method to measure various constructs in many areas of social science research. Literature holds abundant evidence that social desirability bias (SDB), which is a special kind of response bias, can severely plague the validity and accuracy of the self . This study examines the impact of a social desirability response bias as a personality characteristic (self-deception and impression management) and as an item characteristic (perceived desirability of the behavior) on self-reported ethical conduct. Findings from a sample of college students revealed that self-reported ethical conduct is associated with both personality and item.

    Theoretical Concepts and Background. From its beginnings, research into the motives behind people's efforts to be successful (the achievement motive), have an impact on others (the power motive), establish and maintain social contact with others (the affiliation motive), and become involved in affectionate relationships (intimacy motive) has been bound up with the question of which methods .

An image is the representation of an individual formed in the minds of others, created by the self-selection of.

The self has meaning only within the social context, and it is not wrong to say that the social situation defines our self-concept and our self-esteem. We rely on others to provide a “social reality”—to help us determine what to think, feel, and do (Hardin & Higgins, ).

Social desirability bias intervenes in the last stage of the response process when the response is communicated to the researcher. In this step, a more or less deliberate editing of the response shifts the answer in the direction the respondent feels is more socially acceptable. Social desirability is the tendency of individuals to present themselves favorably with respect to prevailing social norms and standards (Zerbe & Paulhus, ); that is, “the tendency of individuals to ‘manage’ social interactions by projecting favorable images of themselves, thereby maximizing conformity to others and minimizing the danger of receiving negative evaluations from them”.

rule out the possibility that the asymmetry purely reflects social desirability motives (Studies 1 2). We then seek to test whether the asymmetry is rooted in part in self other differences in peo-ple s consideration and valuation of introspective versus behav-ioral information about conformity (Studies 3 5).

Social desirability is one of the most common sources of bias affecting the validity of experimental and survey research findings.

From a self‐presentational perspective, social desirability can be regarded as the resultant of two separate factors: self‐deception and other‐deception. Social desirability bias refers to the fact that in self-reports, people may report inaccurately on sensitive topics in order to present themselves in the best possible light (Fisher, ; Grimm.

Regarding the presence of social desirability bias, Blais et al. [6] found that self-reported work motivations only correlated very weakly with the Marlow-Crowne Social Desirability Scale [18]. Whenever individual differences are measured with self-reports, concerns arise over response biases: They are habitual tendencies to respond to questions based on item properties such as keying direction and the desirability of the response tendencies may interfere with the ability of self-reports to capture the intended individual differences.

Social self & socialization 1. George Herbert Mead, a sociologist from the late s, is well known for his theory of the social self, which includes the concepts of 'self,' 'me,' and 'I.' Mead's work focuses on the way in which the self is developed. Social media. The term ‘social media’ refers to the various internet-based networks that enable users to interact with others, verbally and visually (Carr & Hayes, ).According to the Pew Research Centre (), at least 92% of teenagers are active on social t, Smith, Anderson, Duggan, and Perrin identified the 13–17 age group as particularly heavy users of social media users.

At the foundation of all human behavior is the self—our sense of personal identity and of who we are as e an understanding of the self is so important, it has been studied for many years by psychologists (James, ; Mead, ) and is still one of the most important and most researched topics in social psychology (Dweck & Grant, ; Taylor & Sherman, ).

Leading theoreticians and researchers present current thinking about the role played by group memberships in people's sense of who they are and what they are worth. The chapters build on the assumption, developed out of social identity theory, that people create a social self that both defines them and shapes their attitudes and behaviors.
