Abstract:
Two hundred and twenty-three Taiwanese college and high school students (124 boys and 109 girls, aged 16-18 yrs) were administered the Chinese version of the Offer Self-Image Questionnaire for Adolescents (OSIQ) and Family Background Survey. The self-image questionnaire and social economic status (SES) survey data were used to investigate different gender and social class levels in the self-image of Taiwanese adolescents. Social class was determined by means of the Hollingshead "Two Factor Index of Social Position". Results showed that girls displayed poorer self-image than boys in many areas. Student's social class background had no apparent influence on self-image. Also there were no interaction effects of gender and social class in the self-image of Taiwanese adolescents.
