self claim

A self claim is a statement of belief from an IPOV and does not need to be justified. It is a wiki best practice, when talking about people or groups to discriminate between their self claims and objective statements of fact, usually by creating separate profile and user pages.


I am a good person or Bill is a good person when claimed by Bill himself is a self claim that need not be justified because it is a statement of belief. All statements of belief are independent of popular opinion and objective standards. Normally this kind of statement would not appear on Bill's profile but rather his user page.
