Self-Consciousness/adolescence/Developmental psychology/Upton: [during adolescence there is a] change in cognitive skills is reflected in the growing ability of adolescents to handle increasingly complex scientific and mathematical concepts.
This new way of thinking also underlies the ability of the adolescent to engage in introspection and self-reflection, which, according to some theorists, results in heightened self-consciousness (Elkind. 1978)(1).
Elkind called this phenomenon adolescent egocentrism, suggesting that this governs the way in which adolescents think about social matters. >Egocentrism/Elkind.
