Self Esteem: A Self-Social Construct. A Technical Report. Project 0001.
Ziller, Robert C.; And Others
Self-esteem is defined within a context of self-other orientation, and an instrument is described which is designed to measure the evaluation of the self in relation to significant others using topological representations of self and others and involving limited verbal demands. The results of a program of research are described which emanate from an evolving theory of social self-esteem. The results suggest that self-acceptance and social acceptance are inextricably combined and raise serious doubts about the meaning of earlier results concerning self-esteem which were based upon verbal self-reports.
