Thornton, Bill; Ryckman, Richard M.
Journal of Adolescence, v14 n1 p85-98 Mar 1991
Examined contributions of physical attractiveness and physical effectiveness to self-esteem among adolescents in grades 7, 9, and 11, and college freshmen. Both attractiveness and effectiveness were significantly related to self-esteem of males and females. Attractiveness and effectiveness did not appear to be differentially important to self-esteem of males and females, and consistent patterns were evident across different grade levels. (Author/NB)
