The Importance of Inner and Outer Body Parts Attitudes in the Self-Concept of Late Adolescents
Lerner, Richard M.; Brackney, Barbara E.
Sex Roles, 4, 2, 225-38, Apr 78
In an experiment designed to determine the role of body part attitudes in self-concept, females demonstrated greater knowledge of their inner body and attached greater importance to their body parts than did males. However, inner body parts attitudes predicted self-concept for males, but not for females. (Author/GC)
