Adolescent Egocentrism Case Studies
TEXTBOOK: LIFE SPAN DEVELOPMENT 15th EDITION
By: JOHN W. SANTROCK
University of Texas at Dallas
Reflect on two of Elkind’s manifestations of adolescent egocentrism:
1. The imaginary audience
2. The personal fable
Next, create two case studies (250-500 words each), each illustrating one of these.
Case studies can be personal experiences or made up for the purpose of illustration.
Examples should be unique, and should differ from examples used in Lecture 5 or the Topic 5 textbook readings.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
