Bohon, Lisa M.; And Others
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v15 n1 p63-79 Feb 1993
Experimental design studied global and componential self-esteem. Perceived ethnic status was manipulated among 132 Anglo- and Mexican-American college students. For both groups, those in the high-status condition showed higher overall self-esteem and higher social competitiveness. Compared to Anglos, Mexican-Americans showed lower social-power self-esteem, higher family self-esteem, and higher competitiveness. (SV)
