Salient Domains in the Self-Conception of Adults with Mental Retardation.
Zetlin, Andrea G.; Turner, Jim L.
Mental Retardation, v26 n4 p219-22 Aug 1988
Forty-eight mentally retarded adults completed a semi-projective sentence completion task designed to identify major categories of self-representation. Identified domains (including work, social conformity and dependency, eventfulness/boredom, and interpersonal relations) are poorly represented on widely used global self-concept measures, and the authors caution against continued reliance on such instruments.
