Field Independence--Dependence and Self-Esteem in Preadolescents: Does Gender Make a Difference?
Bosacki, Sandra; Innerd, Wilfred; Towson, Shelagh
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v26 n6 p691-703 Dec 1997
The relationship between field independence-dependence and self-esteem was studied in 33 preadolescent (sixth-grade) girls and 30 boys. Contrary to prediction, girls did not have lower self-esteem than boys, and the hypothesis that field-independence and self-esteem correlated negatively for girls and positively for boys was confirmed.
