Two headed creatures- Middle school students

This mornings session provided both insight and vocabulary to describe the bobble headed individuals that sit in front of me everyday.I loved David Elkins terms pseudo-stupidity,imaginary audience and personal fable . They so aptly describe the behaviors that are a daily occurence in a middle school classroom. I never realized that they were connected to the developing cognitive ability of my students.The term true self-false self was also of great interest. These I feel were more the outcome of peer pressure and have changed as society as changed over the years.
