Pamięć autobiograficzna i tożsamość
Rocznik: 2010 Tom: 16 Numer: 1
Theoretical consequences of an assumption referring to multiple identities are discussed. One group of theories based on a rule of cognitive economy rule suggest that one unique personal identity is better solution. It allows to explain transtemporal and transsituational stability of behavior. On the other hand there is another group of theories that refer to multiplicity of selves. They allow for more precise prediction of behavior and for designing therapeutic and corrective interventions. New theoretical approaches to autobiographical memory are considered as a possible solution of this conflict. The concept of working self seems to be a good candidate for a basis of personality theory that takes into account of knowledge concerning executive functions of working memory.
