The Self Concept And Performance. Studies on the Self Concept and Rehabilitation.
Fitts, William H.
The monograph reports on a number of studies relating the self-concept to performance in education and employment. Using the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (TSCS), experimenters divided subjects into two groups (successful/unsuccessful) and attempted to predict subjects' behavior and success on the basis of differences in the TSCS scores. All studies cited supported the self-concept as an important variable in rehabilitation and predictor of behavior. (Author)
