Self-Perceptions, Discrepancies between Self- and Other-Perceptions, and Children's Self-Reported Emotions
Nuijens, Karen L.; Teglasi, Hedwig; Hancock, Gregory R.
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v27 n6 p477-493 2009
Self and others' perceptions of victimization, bullying, and academic competence were examined in relation to self-reported anxiety, depression, anger, and global self-worth in a non-clinical sample of second- and third-grade children. Previous studies document links between negative emotions and self-perceptions that are less favorable than others' perceptions. However, the current study suggests that the impact of discrepant self-other-perceptions (in bullying, victimization, and academic competence) on emotions is complex, sometimes involving interactions between perceptions of self and other informants. (Contains 4 tables and 3 figures.)
