Glossary (Version 8.4)

Individual characteristics (including thoughts, ideas, feelings and attitudes towards self-worth) and capabilities of a person, or characteristics of a social group. Identity refers to all things that define who we are at any given moment in our lives. It is not static. We construct our identities according to things such as where we come from, what we believe in, who we relate to, how we belong, how we behave and what we do.
