Evidence for the Self as an Imaginal Prototype.
Yarmey, A. Daniel; Johnson, Julia
Journal of Research in Personality, v16 n2 p238-46 Jun 1982
Investigated a set of photographs taken of each subject and self-rated for extent to which each resembled their imagined prototype of "real-self." The findings support the hypothesis of the availability of a memory image schema--the self functions as a cognitive prototype with imaginal and verbal characteristics. (Author/RC)
