Qu’est-ce que l’identité ?

Qu’est-ce que l’identité ?

Bonjour, 

Cette fois-ci, je vous écris sur un sujet dont nous avons discuté et même débattu dans les deux derniers ateliers d’Exeko.

Qu’est-ce que l’identité ?

Dès le départ, je ne suis pas d’accord avec les deux chargé.es de l’atelier ainsi que les participant.es présent.es. 

L’identité d’une personne ne devrait inclure seulement que ce qui figure sur son passeport ou son permis de conduire. Ce qui nous définit physiquement : âge, taille, sexe.

Nous pourrions y rajouter nos racines. Exemple : frères, soeurs, père, mère. Mais le reste ne demeure que des qualificatifs. Exemples : gentil, compétent, habile, sociable, etc.

Ce que Mathieu et Valérie ont écrit sur le tableau n’était que ce que nous croyons être l’identité personnelle, car, selon moi, tout ce qui vient après l’identité physique n’est que l’accumulation de ce que l’on nous a appris. 

Soit par nos parents : être poli, respectueux, partager, participer, etc. Soit par la vie, nos professeurs, nos amis, nos voisins, nos amoureux, la communauté. Des personnes qui nous ont aidé à cheminer à travers chaque étape : enfance, adolescence, vie d’adulte. C’est notre personnalité qui évolue et non notre identité.

Moi je serai toujours, à part mon apparence physique, le même porteur d’ADN qu’au début de ma vie et, comme mes parents et ancêtres, j’en laisse à chaque génération ou descendance. Mais heureusement, dans mon cas, je suis le dernier de ma lignée.

C’est mon opinion et ma vision de l’identité, mais la vôtre peut diverger de la mienne, soit que la personnalité peut faire partie de l’identité. Dans ce cas, je me demande pourquoi nous agissons différemment avec nos amis, nos connaissances de travail, notre famille. Se peut-il que notre personnalité serve à protéger notre identité ?

Dans ce cas, qui sommes-nous et le savons-nous nous-mêmes ?

Cette question m’a été posée par une jeune dame à la Maison des amis. Ma première réponse, sans réfléchir et à froid, a été : oui, c’est...

Selon moi, l’indifférence se présente sous différentes formes : la froideur, la neutralité, le besoin et la survie pour n’en nommer que quatre.

Nous recherchons plusieurs profils pouvant compléter notre équipe de médiation pour nos projets en communautés Autochtones (Trickster, Trickster...
