George H. Mead (1863-1931) is positioned as 1 of the founders of the SI (Symbolic interactionism) perspective in sociology. Mead described the social self & its development through childhood.

They must also develop a complex understanding of the multiple roles others play, for they must be able to recognize and anticipate how others will behave in a given situation.
