Zuckerman, Diana M.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v20 n7-8 p429-44 Apr 1989
Compares the stress levels and reactions to stress of 804 female and 127 male college students and examines their relationship to self-esteem, confidence, and self-concept. Concludes that sex differences in dysfunctional reactions to stress are related to sex differences in self-concepts, whereas sex differences in areas of stress are not related to sex differences in self-esteem or self-confidence.
