After learning about Mead’s Me, Myself and I, I feel that I understand the term better. I have been hearing this term all through my life because of the media and I never understood its meaning. There is a movie titled Me, Myself and Irene, and there are songs with the same title. One song is Beyonce’s song Me, Myself and I. More recently Kelly Clarkson has a song titled Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) and in the songs lyrics it states Me, Myself and I. Mead helped me figure out the meaning of Me, Myself and I.
According to Mead, The Self exists as self-consciousness. It is a reflective entity. The ‘Me’ is viewing ourselves as objects in the phase of the self called me ‘me’. The ‘Me’ is the person looking back at you in a mirror. You are looking at all the things society sees you as. The ‘I’ is unique to the individual. It gives individuals a degree of control over the way they fulfill social roles. The I is the intension of what you’re trying to do. This is how Mead’s Me, Myself and I fits into the media.
