Self-Efficacy, Self-Worth and Stress
Flynn, Deborah M.; Chow, Peter
Education, v138 n1 p83-88 Fall 2017
One of the most stressful periods of life has been reported to be the time spent in the post secondary education system (Hales, 2009). As a result, researchers are interested in determining the various correlates associated with the successful coping during this time. It has been well established that self-esteem and self-worth are both factors that are correlated with subjective stress. Data collected from 3,018 university students resulted in a more comprehensive self-efficacy scale and a self-worth scale based on one's feelings about what life has brought and how it has impacted us. Four variables (physical health, mental health, stress, and satisfaction with life) were used to gauge the respondent's state of health and stress. This constituted the state scale. Results found that self-efficacy and self-worth are highly correlated at 0.9 and that both of them together could account for 21% of the variance in the state factor.
