    Well, Genie was a girl who had faced complete social isolation for the first 13 years of her life. She was locked in a room and neglected basically.

    I don't really know how it links with the 'looking glass self', although i can see how it would link with socialisation. This is basically the process of learning to behave to expected cultural norms etc. So you could say that Genie never really experience socialisation, as she never expereience the social world.
