Self-esteem, social-esteem and conformity behaviour
U.P. Singh & T. Prasad
A group of Postgraduate students (N=400) of Bhagalpur University India, was given a measures of social conformity, self-esteem and social esteem. Conformity and low self-esteem were significantly related (r=.10, p<.01, df=398). Conformists were found to have significantly lower self-esteem than the nonconformists. However, the hypothesis of conformists having significantly lower social-esteem than the nonconformists was not substantiated (r=.02, p=ns., df=398).
