Body image is a person's perception of his or her physical appearance. A person with a poor body image will perceive his or her own body as being unattractive or even repulsive to others, while a person with a good body image will see him or herself as attractive to others, or will at least accept his or her body in its current form. Perceived body image is not necessarily related to any objective measure or the average opinion of other people; a person who has a poor body image may be rated as beautiful by others, and a person with a good body image may be rated as unattractive by others. Body image is most strongly affected during puberty. ...more on Wikipedia about "Body image"

In sociology, gender identity describes the gender with which a person identifies (i.e, whether one perceives oneself to be a man, a woman, or describes oneself in some less conventional way), but can also be used to refer to the gender that other people attribute to the individual on the basis of what they know from gender role indications (clothing, hair style, etc.). ...more on Wikipedia about "Gender identity"
The term Gender-Identity/Role has been coined by the Dr. John Money, Emeritus Professor of Medical psychology and behavioral sciences and of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and School of Medicine. He chose to create this term to more accurately reflect in language the fact that the way that one conceives of oneself as a sexed being (one's gender identity) is expressed in living by language and other behaviors, clothing and other symbolic indications, and in general a wide variety of signs that one learns from one's culture (one's gender role). ...more on Wikipedia about "Gender-Identity/Role"

The psychological idea of identity in humans is tied up in self image, namely one's view or model of oneself. Psychologists and counselors interest themselves in psychological identity —an individual person's sense of self. This is usually referred to as personal identity. (See also identity crisis and the work of Erik Erikson.) ...more on Wikipedia about "Identity (social science)"
Erik Erikson, the psychologist who coined the term identity crisis, believes that the identity crisis is the most important conflict human beings encounter when they go through eight developmental stages in life. The identity is "a subjective sense as well as an observable quality of personal sameness and continuity, paired with some belief in the sameness and continuity of some shared world image. As a quality of unself-conscious living, this can be gloriously obvious in a young person who has found himself as he has found his communality. In him we see emerge a unique unification of what is irreversibly given--that is, body type and temperament, giftedness and vulnerability, infantile models and acquired ideals--with the open choices provided in available roles, occupational possibilities, values offered, mentors met, friendships made, and first sexual encounters." (Erikson, 1970.) ...more on Wikipedia about "Identity crisis (psychology)"
Impassibility (from Latin in-, "not", passibilis, "able to suffer, experience emotion") describes the theological doctrine that God does not experience pain or pleasure from the actions of another being. Some theologies often portray God as a being subject to many (or all) emotions: for example, in the Hebrew Bible Yahweh is portrayed as experiencing anger, jealousy, and disappointment. Indeed, early religious interpretation of the world considered thunderstorms and sunshine to be indicative of God's wrath and happiness, respectively. ...more on Wikipedia about "Impassibility"

It is typically contrasted with omnipotence. Omniscience is sometimes understood to also imply the capacity to know everything that will be. ...more on Wikipedia about "Omniscience"
(Orch-OR) Orch OR (“Orchestrated Objective Reduction”) is a theory of consciousness put forth in the mid-1990s by British physicist Sir Roger Penrose and American anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff. Whereas most theories assume consciousness emerges from complex computation at the level of synapses among brain neurons, Orch OR involves a specific form of quantum computation which underlies these neuronal synaptic activities. The proposed quantum computations occur in structures inside the brain’s neurons called microtubules. ...more on Wikipedia about "Orch-OR"

Procrastination or "task aversion" is the irrational delay of an intended course of action, even while expecting to be worse off for the delay (compare temporisation). The procrastinator deviates from the task, usually in favor of another more enjoyable (or less unenjoyable) activity. This behavior is pervasive throughout society - everyone procrastinates to some degree - but some people are so chronically affected as to be severely debilitated. ...more on Wikipedia about "Procrastination"
In philosophy, the self is the idea of a unified being which is the source of an idiosyncratic consciousness. Moreover, this self is the agent responsible for the thoughts and actions of an individual to which they are ascribed. It is a substance, which therefore endures through time; thus, the thoughts and actions at different moments of time may pertain to the same self (See Locke). As the notion of subject, the "self" has been harshly criticized by Nietzsche at the end of the 19th century, on behalf of what Gilles Deleuze would call a "becoming-other". ...more on Wikipedia about "Self (philosophy)"
The self is a key construct in several schools of psychology. Usages differ between theorists and fields of study, but in general the self refers to the conscious, reflective personality of an individual. The study of the self involves significant methodological problems, especially concerning consciousness. Some of these are taken up in philosophy of mind and metaphysics. ...more on Wikipedia about "Self (psychology)"
