Compared Malaysian (collectivist) and British (individualist) students on their self-liking and self-competence. Malaysians were lower in self-competence when self-liking was held constant but were higher in self-liking when self-competence was held constant. Differences between groups were not reliable after statistically equating groups on two dimensions of individualism-collectivism. (SLD)
