Self-Concept, Self-Esteem, and Body Attitudes among Japanese Male and Female Adolescents.
Lerner, Richard M.; And Others
Child Development, v51 n3 p847-55 Sep 1980
In comparison to American adolescent data sets, Japanese adolescents are found to have lower self-esteem and less favorable views of their bodies' attractiveness and effectiveness. Sex differences in self-concept account for more variance in the Japanese cohorts than in comparative American ones. Types of self-concept differences are similar in both cultures. (Author/RH)
