Kamptner, N. Laura
Adolescence, v30 n118 p301-18 Sum 1995
Analyzes treasured possessions and their meanings in adolescence, including their relation to those treasured during early life and their relation to self-identity. Subjects were 14- to 18-year-old high school students (n=249). Results showed that males' most treasured possessions embodied enjoyment and instrumental meanings, whereas females' treasured objects showed that the kinds of objects treasured had interpersonal meanings.
