Explain the difference between identity, self-image, and self-esteem. What are the specifications of each term?

I think that identity is a large construct, which includes self-image and self-esteem.

Person's identity is a combination of social role, nationality, gender, religion and so on.

Self-image is what a person sees in him- or herself.

Self-esteem is how much value we put in ourselves. Low value means low self-esteem and vice versa.

There are a lot of articles online related to the topic. Here are links to papers explaining these terms in details: Identity, Self-esteem, Self-image.

Hope it helps.
