Character vs. Self is the theme that places a character against his or her own will, confusion or fears. This conflict can also be where a character tries to find out who he or she is or comes to a realization or a change in character. Although the struggle is internal, the character can be influenced by external forces. The struggle of the human being to come to a decision is the basis of Character vs. Self.
