The Chameleon

The Chameleon

After reading “The Chameleon” by David Grann from the August 11, 2008 issue of The New Yorker, reflect on your own ways of managing or controlling the way you present yourself in public. That is, ask yourself: how do I tell my own story? What do I “make” people see about myself?

Obviously, Frederic Bourdin presented a fraudulent self to the world, but we all manipulate (without a negative or positive connotation) our external selves for “public” consumption? Why do we do it? How does it affect our own sense of ourselves? How does our own sense of our “private” selves figure into our presentation of our “public” selves?
