ABSTRACT: In short, this articles generally orientate readers about a total reflection of self concept. Basically, the topic discuss upon the term normally used to describe self concept, it different components and it relationship toward academic achievement in specific. Finally, last but not the least to make this total reflection a reality, it should also cover briefly regarding the structure and development of self concept plus the methods of assessment and the global versus domain specific models. We reflex on what we have done and can do in comparison to our expectation and the expectation of others and to the characteristics and accomplishments of others Self concept is not innate, but is developed by the individual through interaction with the environment and reflecting on the interaction. Of cause there are variety of ways to think about the self . . The major issue here is the direction of the relationship. Does self concept produce achievement or does achievement produce self-concept? Self concept is inherently phenomenological, that is, it refers to the person’s own view of him or herself. Apparently, there are several different components of self concept which include physical, academic, social and transpersonal. This component thus in turn give a greater influence to the definition. Accordingly , definition is the first consideration in the assessment of self concept and then choose a method or instrument consistent with that definition
