Psychology (Humanities), 1990

Impressive-sounding and intellectual™ way to say “I am” or describe which caricature, avatar, or social construct you believe you are at that moment.

Just like superheroes in Marvel films or referring to yourself in the third person, social psychologist John Turner formulated a way to avoid the phenomena of complex social negotiations such as recognition, reputation, and self-concept with his 1990 “Self Categorisation Theory”.
