Use of a Self-Anchoring Technique in Assessing Self-Conceptions of Visually Impaired Persons.
Kane, Terry J.; Rawls, Horace D.
The Cantril-Kilpatrick Self-Anchoring Technique (1960) was used to assess self concepts of visually impaired persons by performing a numerical evaluation of visually impaired persons' self ratings and a content analysis specifying dimensions used by the individuals in rating themselves. A total of 577 persons participated. Results showed that the majority of clients placed themselves at the middle of the scale. It was also found that the noncongenital group consistently rated themselves higher at the positive end of the scale. Younger clients were reported to have better self concepts than those individuals 30 years of age and over. Analysis of data included descriptive comparisons between clients interviewed in the field and those in the clinic, comparisons between races, age categories, sexes, degrees of residual vision, age at onset of visual impairment, the length of impairment, and education categories; some emphasis was placed on rural distinctions.
