People are born to develop who we are and what role we play as an individual in society. Through socialization we learn the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of their group. George Herbert Mead recognized the nurture of our human behavior ability takes a role on how we view ourselves and develop our personalities through self-awareness. An agent of socialization could be referred to school. If we want to fit in or do what our peers do we begin to see ourselves differently. As stated by Cooley’s concept of the looking-glass self, we begin to make ourselves through the eyes of peoples perception. Jean Piaget was interested in the way children thoughts changed over time. Piaget created the four stages that children go through as they develop an ability to sense. The first stage, sensorimotor, infants began the understanding of the world but only through touch and sight. The second stage, preoperational, children begin to use memory and imagination. The third stage, concrete operational, children have an increased awareness of visible events. The fourth stage, formal operation, children begin to logically think to abstract concepts.
