## Who I Think I Am: Introduction

Write a 2 page Introduction to your paper titled “Who I Think I Am.” Your Introduction should identify the purpose of your paper, which is to describe your personality based on the BPP, which, in turn is based on the five-factor model as well as the notion of a multifaceted self. You will, therefore, have to describe each of the five factors as well as the notion of multiple selves. You should emphasize that the BPP, and your paper, will focus on DIFFERENCES between the facets of the self, which are summarized in an “integrator matrix.” Finally, you should describe how your paper will be organized starting with a description of your unified self, to provide background/context for the rest of your paper. You will then explain how you will proceed to describe and interpret the important differences in the facets of yourself according to the integrator matrix. Use the “Who I Think I Am Introduction Checklist” as you write your introduction and do not submit anything until all requirements are checked off.
