The Factor Differential in Self-Concept Analysis.
Soares, Louise M.; Soares, Anthony T.
Nomological studies have most often been conducted between networks rather than within networks of variables. To continue the series of within-network nomological research into the construct of self-concept, different self-scales descriptive of academic settings were completed by 1.852 students in grades one through twelve. The students seemed fairly discriminating about the pictures they held of themselves in various contexts, although older students had shaped their self concepts more distinctly. The results continue to suggest a theoretical framework for the construct of self, which is neither unitary nor hierarchical, but rather multidimensional in an individualized patterning of experience with the possibility of earlier self-conceptualization than previously evidenced.
