ABSTRACT
Definition of the term self-perception theory is presented. It refers to the belief, as proposed by the American psychologist Daryl J. Bern, that a person's attitudes, beliefs and self- characterizations are largely determined by self-observation. According to this theory, attitude change results by changing a person's behaviour.
