Identity Communication
Identity the creation of the sense of self within a given context from the memories,
experiences, and values of the individual. It implies that identity is descriptive of the different

of such behaviors to give the right impression. Communication scenario III provides an example
of how pretenses are communicated to create an identity of a fulfilled and happy person to fit
