Strong sense of identity and self-modifying are somewhat contradictions. (similar to drugs that change the personality) That might even lead to the point that a self-aware AI does not want to modify itself to preserve its current state of being.
Likewise a friendly AI might be aware that the next-level AI it's supposed to develop might not be guaranteed friendly and therefore refuse to develop it at all.
