Personal acts, whether carried on alone or with others, are amenable to the same mode of analysis as joint actions. They are concerted. This article deals with six dimensions of the orchestration of such concerts—self, role and role-taking, personal appearace, situations, out-of-awareness contexts, and symbols. Comments are made and questions raised about these dimensions that are not often made or raised in the literature of symbolic interaction. A rudimentary paradigm has been established which needs further systematizarjon and specification but may well guide future research even in its present state.
