More than a single story | SOCI 1001 – Introduction to Sociology | Walden University

The theory of the looking-glass self helps explain that how you think other people view you influences your view of yourself.

In this week’s Ted Talk video, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie cautions us to not reduce ourselves or others to a “single story.” Why might it be important to see a complete picture of others and ourselves?

For your assignment, you will explore your experience with watching the video on the danger of a single story. You will consider whether you can relate to any aspect of the experiences described. You will also examine what aspects of your identity you would like people to know more about.
