Fracturing the Real-Self<-->Fake-Self Dichotomy: Moving Toward “Crystallized” Organizational Discourses and Identities
Unformatted Document Text:  Real-SelfÅÆFake-Self Dichotomy 24 hidden from view. In other words, when the self is taken as “real,” it requires little further analysis, and “notions of workplace reform or societal change are also therefore largely peripheral” (Newton, 1995, p. 49). Further politicized critiques and empirical analyses of the real self-fake self dichotomy may ultimately encourage the possibility for more collective or social forms of resistance, including but certainly not limited to alternative vocabularies and metaphors such as those presented herein. Such efforts would bring into sharp focus the ways in which organizations, rather than solely individuals, are accountable for cultivating managerialist and entrepreneurial cultures, and may serve to create workplaces where members have not only the illusion of choice, but an actual voice in constructing a conflictual variety of “crystallized” selves.
