The Communicated Self: Exploring the Interaction between Self and Social Context.
Coover, Gail E.; Murphy, Sheila T.
Human Communication Research, v26 n1 p125-47 Jan 2000
Explores the influence of social identity and social context on achievement in a counterstereotypical domain. Finds that analysis of self-descriptions of 12-year-old African American and Mexican American students revealed that success in a counterstereotypical domain at age 18 was predicted by a more elaborated self-concept, a more elaborated self-schema within the counterstereotypical domain, and more positive self-descriptions.
