Okay, while I am eager for a new Persona game, I am worried. All the things I didn’t like about P3 WERE improved upon with P4. And I could even deal with the considerably lighter tone and anime cliches. But the social links, which made up a huge portion of both games, were uninteresting as fuck. Persona 3’s main characters and story may have been underwhelming, but at least it had interesting social links. And I also didn’t like how Persona 4 pussy-footed around subjects like homosexual and transgender individuals without actually addressing them. I won’t know if Persona 5 is good until I play it, but I don’t think I’ll be forking over any cash for it until it’s been out a while.  And I mean, P3/P4 were good games, but to be honest I AM FUCKING SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THEM. (Persona Q actually sounds good, though. Let’s Persona Dance! 4 does not. And I didn’t like the combat system of the fighting game, or the fact that there were no Persona 2 characters.)

Now go cry because I have opinions.

PUBLIC SELF:
The Public Self is the part of ourselves that we are happy to share with others and discuss openly. Thus you and I both see and can talk openly about this ‘me’ and gain a common view of who I am in this element.
PRIVATE SELF:
There are often parts of our selves that are too private to share with others. We hide these away and refuse to discuss them with other people or even expose them in any way.
Private elements may be embarrassing or shameful in some way. They may also be fearful or seek to avoid being discussed for reasons of vulnerability.
Between the public and private selves, there are partly private, partly public aspects of our selves that we are prepared to share only with trusted others.
BLIND SELF:
We often assume that the public and private selves are all that we are. However, the views that others have of us may be different from those we have of ourselves. For example a person who considers themself as intelligent may be viewed as an arrogant and socially ignorant by others.
Our blind self may remain blind because others will not discuss this part of us for a range of reasons. Perhaps they realize that we would be unable to accept what they see. Perhaps they have tried to discuss this and we have been so blind that we assume their views are invalid. They may also withhold this information as it gives them power over us.
UNDISCOVERED SELF:
Finally, the fourth self is one which neither us or nor other people see. This undiscovered self may include both good and bad things that may remain forever undiscovered or may one day be discovered, entering the private, blind or maybe even public selves.
Between the Blind and Undiscovered Selves, are partly hidden selves that only some people see. Psychologists and those who are more empathic, for example, may well see more than the average person.
