  SELF Object Model
SELF is a dynamically-typed language, and provides for run-time binding of a message sent to an object to the method that implements the requested operation.
SELF provides a form of classical object model in which the binding choice is based on the receiving object itself (rather than its class, since SELF has no classes).
In the SELF implementation, objects are represented by the values of their assignable slots, if any, and a pointer (not visible to the user) to a structure called the object's map; this map is shared by all members of the same clone family.

 Feminist Perspectives on the Self
Whether the self is identified with pure abstract reason or with the instrumental rationality of the marketplace, though, these conceptions of the self isolate the individual from personal relationships and larger social forces.
The self is merely an unstable discursive node — a shifting confluence of multiple discursive currents — and sexed/gendered identity is merely a "corporeal style" — the imitation and repeated enactment of ubiquitous norms.
For Butler, psychodynamic accounts of the self, including Kristeva's and Chodorow's, camouflage the performative nature of the self and collaborate in the cultural conspiracy that maintains the illusion that one has an emotionally anchored, interior identity that is derived from one's biological nature, which is manifest in one's genitalia.

 Self-efficacy defined
People who have a high sense of efficacy are likely to view their state of affective arousal as an energizing facilitator of performance, whereas those who are beset by self- doubts regard their arousal as a debilitator.
Self- appraisals of less able students suffer most when the whole group studies the same material and teachers make frequent comparative evaluations.
Whether adolescents foresake risky activities or become chronically enmeshed in them is determined by the interplay of personal competencies, self- management efficacy and the prevailing influences in their lives.

Self knits a dense patchwork of high-minded low living (he ascribes the "weirdly fusty narrative voice in some of my work" to his cerebral childhood).
With his first short stories, it was his forbidding image and background in addiction as much as his fierce parables of mental (ill)health that gave him his dangerous glamour.
Self is also a great admirer of Martin Amis and he once declared that although at 6'6'' he is a foot taller than Amis, he always feels dwarfed when Martin comes into the room.

 Self: Breakfast with Girls: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Beck, I guess Self will have to settle for being known as "the American Momus." The persona Mahaffey has constructed for himself is that of an old- school, Serge Gainsbourg- style pop star: cocky, witty, occasionally vulgar, and endlessly charming.
Self's songwriting philosophy mirrors his penchant for goofy studio noisemaking; his off- kilter chord progressions are often more interesting than enjoyable, and his compositions are crammed to capacity with ideas that sometimes don't work so well with each other.
Self has some good songwriting chops, but they have yet to catch up with his artistic vision and studio skills.

 Tiny Self
Self files must also be present if you want to test non trivial programs with this.
But much more important than that, the Self expression gave the exact same result even though there was a great difference in the order that the bytecodes were executed (the total number of steps didn't change, of course).
Self specifies evaluation order of arguments in expressions very carefully, but any program that depends on this won't work with tinySelf.

Due to the additional overhead of emulating even the simplest classical constructs with pure object oriented means, it was clear from the beginning that Self required a completely new approach to compile it efficiently.
For an untyped programming language like Self, this is an non-trivial task since the pure object-oriented programs do not contain any type information at all.

 My Self Esteem
The implication is that teachers need to concentrate on the academic successes and failures of their students.
Given the above formula, this suggests that success in a particular subject area is not really changing one's self-concept (knowledge of one's self) or even self-esteem (one's subjective evaluation of one's value or worth), but rather is impacting one's expecation about future success based on one's past experience.
Seligman's (1996) work on explanatory style suggests that the intervening variable connecting self-esteem and achievement is the student's level of "optimism" or the tendency to see the world as a benevolent (good things will probably happen) or malevolent (bad things will probably happen).

Self-concept may be defined as the totality of a complex, organized, and dynamic system of learned beliefs, attitudes and opinions that each person holds to be true about his or her personal existence.
Self-concept is different from self-esteem (feelings of personal worth and level of satisfaction regarding one's self) or self-report (what a person is willing and able to disclose).
In Rogers' view, the self is the central ingredient in human personality and personal adjustment.

Prototype-based languages and systems are made up of self describing objects, unlike classical object oriented systems in which objects are described by classes.
More recently, the philosphical focus of prototype-based programming (on concrete objects, rather than on abstractions like classes) has been recognised as at least as important as how objects are created, so this kind of programming has also been called object-based or object-centered.
