Impression management 3.4
Affinity seeking and politeness
Politeness is broken into negative and positive face.
Finding a way to be liked.
Finding and creating new ways to show people they can believe in you and follow you!
Self Handicapping strategies
When we tackle difficult task's we often talk our selves down when we should be talking ourselves up.
When we handicap ourselves we have a tendency to come across as foolish.
Self Depreciating Strategies
If something is broken and you don't know how to fix it ask for help.
But do not rely on this strategy for everything because people will start to believe you are incompetent.
Self monitoring Strategies
Also know as self censor. Being careful of what you say or do and almost too monitored.
Using competence to show people you can lead, but it can often backfire.
This is where we start confirming the image we created and hope that it is a good one!
