Dimensions of Self-Concept in Preschool Children.
Keller, Ann; And Others
Self-descriptive data from 48 children; 8 male and 8 female 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds, indicated the salience of activity as a dimension of the preschooler's self-concept. Analysis of responses to the 2 most open-ended measures yielded 9 response categories: actions, relationships, body-image, possessions, personal labels, gender, age, evaluation, and personal characteristics and preferences; but only responses in the action category showed relatively high frequency and stability. All age groups also showed significantly greater preference for action rather than body-referent statements. (Author/MS)
