Social psychology demonstrates that self-image is the foundation of all human behavior. Social psychologists research how this sense of self develops and what factors determine how people think and feel about themselves. Self-esteem and confidence are dependent on self-image and often determine a person’s happiness, psychological well-being, and life success.
