What “Age” Do We Live In?
Shift in Real Self
Institution
• Adhering to a high
standard
• Living up to one’s
standards
• Through achievements
• When in control of
feelings and behaviors
• Revealing life’s
perfection
Emotion
• Expressing wants and
feelings
• Not doing what one
enjoys
• Through discovery
• When constraint,
inhibitions removed
• Reveal life’s
imperfections
Consequences of Shift From Institution to Emotion

3) It about me
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_Jante
