Insight into the Formation and Development of the Self through the Research of Self-Reference Effect
Abstract: In recent years, the mechanism of self-reference effect (SRE) has gradually converted from the re-search object to a tool to explore the relationship between the nature of self and memory. Thus, from the studies of self-reference effect among three life stages (children, adults and the olds) in normal groups domestic and overseas, this review attempts to see the process of self formation and development through indirect inference. On the basis of research results of various scholars, the author pointed out that: 1) SRE means a superior memory effect, and increases with age; 2) at some stages the development of self is correspondent with the self-reference effect which is based on the development and maturity of self, and normal interpersonal communication and emotional satisfaction are key factors in development of self.
