Self-Esteem and Self-Presentation among the Young as a Function of Age and Gender.
Elliott, Gregory C.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v11 n2 p135-53 Apr 1982
Self-esteem's effect on the tendency to convey a false impression by hiding one's feelings behind a facade was studied in youth aged 8 to 19. Lower self-esteem was associated with the tendency to present a false front. Vulnerability to criticism, self-consciousness, fantasy, and age and gender differences are discussed. (Author/CM)
