Individual differences can be found among people in the relative importance that they place on the private and public aspects of their identity. Some see private aspects as more important and significant as well as more precise indicators of what they are, while others give more significance and importance to public aspects The mentioned differences reflect their own identity orientation that was theoretically described by Cheek (1989). In this study, the relationship between self-consciousness, self-monitoring and orientation towards private and public aspects of identity are examined. The obtained results indicate that it is justified to differentiate orientation towards private and public aspects of identity whose relationship with aspects of self-consciousness and self-monitoring are conceptually expected and theoretically explainable.
