Through an existentialist viewpoint, authenticity is the scope to which an individual's actions coincide with their values, thoughts, and emotions after they eliminate outside forces, ranging from familial pressure to finances (Raymond 1991, 16-17). It is also said that authenticity is built through creativity, originality, and on multiple occasions, the rejection of the rules of society (Taylor 1992, 66). Thus, by this notion, an authentic person is unconcerned with the opinions of others and instead focuses on being true to him or herself. This is a difficult feat and as a result, most individuals identify inauthenticity in themselves and others.
