Administered the Adolescent Egocentrism Scale (AES) to middle and high school students (N=129). Found partial support for Inhelder and Piaget's and Elkind's views that adolescent egocentrism is a function of beginning formal operations. Discusses the difficulty of assessing the true thoughts/feelings of persons who are worried how they will appear to others. (Author/ABB)
