If everyone agrees with me...then it must be correct I suppose...and maybe what I think of myself is not governed by myself...but others...which would be really bizzare
its Erving Goffman if you want to look him up
and its come about through a conversation with someone I had about symbolic interactionalism on facebook...So this forum is just one of many outlets
