1. an individual’s sense of self defined by
(a) a set of physical, psychological, and interpersonal characteristics that is not wholly shared with any other person and
(b) a range of affiliations (e.g., ethnicity) and social roles.
Identity involves a sense of continuity, or the feeling that one is the same person today that one was yesterday or last year (despite physical or other changes). Such a sense is derived from one’s body sensations; one’s body image; and the feeling that one’s memories, goals, values, expectations, and beliefs belong to the self. Also called personal identity.
