Investigates the heroes and heroines of 244 school children (11-16) in order to explore both identity development and the socio-cultural factors that shape the self. Finds that (1) almost a quarter of the young people were happy to be themselves and (2) heroes were drawn primarily from the sporting world and media. (CMK)
