A personal identity map shows how a fragmented level of self-organization manifests in the chaos of selfhood. The level of self-organization determines a person's identity, that is, the person's conscious or intuitive sense of sameness over time. Psychodynamic researchers are interested in assessing the level of self-organization in a person and supporting the person in achieving higher levels of self-organization, if possible. The below image presents different methods used in such research, namely quantitative modeling based on self-report data and analysis of verbal narratives. It also depicts the realistic approach, which is subdivided into photography, drawing, and sculptures.
