This chapter expands the basic identity model from its symbolic interactionist origins. It considers the role of resources and discusses the nature and facets of meaning as understood in identity theory. It also reviews the point that identities control sign meanings as well as symbolic meanings. The chapter finally considers resources and those that maintain the patterned and coordinated transformations and flow of resources.

Keywords:   basic identity model, symbolic interactionist origins, resources, meaning, sign meanings, symbolic meanings
