In the present article, the authors suggest a new model of the self-concept that incorporates recent advances in knowledge regarding conceptual structure.  The authors envision the self as a representation in working memory with inherently flexible content and organization.  Initial empirical evidence supporting this view is reviewed and followed by a discussion of the implications of this model for many phenomena involving the self-concept.
