Snow, David A.; Phillips, Cynthia L.
Social Science Quarterly, v63 n3 p462-76 Sep 1982
Tests the hypothesis that college students now conceptualize themselves in terms of their feelings, personal experiences, and impulses rather than in terms of institutional standards and expectations. Subjects were 1125 undergraduate sociology students who completed the Twenty-Statements Test between 1976-79. Results supported the hypothesis. (AM)
