Identity is conceptualized as a broad biopsychosocial self-definition that includes the individual’s self-representation in the areas of physical functioning, thought, personality, relationships, occupation, and social roles broadly defined.

In recent decades, a new form of identification has emerged which breaks down the understanding of the individual as a coherent whole subject into a collection of various cultural identifiers. These cultural identifiers may be the result of various conditions including: location, gender, race, history, nationality, language, sexuality,religious beliefs, ethnicity and aesthetics.
