true self would not be in line with the societies of prior times as Butt says in his book. i the old times before the industrial revolution we would have people who would for example do what they were told by their elders within their families for example they would choose what job they should work in, marry and so on. unfortunately this type of phenomena is still present in 21st century in which people have the idea that they should do what they are told by their elders within their family (father, grandfather etc) for example who to marry, what to study and so on. in this type of scenario we would not be able to see the individuals true self as he/she would be directed to doing and pursuing the need of their elders within their families. however there are people who were relocated after the revolution which meant that they were taking different directions according to who they really are. these individuals have identified their self and as a result have started portraying the inner self through their actions.
