Julia Wertheimer & Rahman Hak-Hagir - ARTIST BY DEFINITION [ 2013 | HD | 1:57 ]
Vienna, Austria | 22th December 2013:
No light. A haunted mansion. Rats. Bats. Pigeon-Shit. But nothing can stop two Artists by Definition:
"Researchers debate over when self-concept development begins. Some assert that gender stereotypes and expectations set by parents for their children impact children's understanding of themselves by approximately age 3. Others suggest that self-concept develops later, around age 7 or 8, when children are developmentally prepared to interpret their own feelings and abilities, as well as feedback they receive from parents, teachers, and peers. Despite differing opinions about the onset of self-concept development, researchers agree on the importance of one’s self-concept, which influences people’s behaviors and cognitive and emotional outcomes including (but not limited to) academic achievement, levels of happiness, anxiety, social integration, self-esteem, and life-satisfaction."
