Self-concept or self-esteem
Burnett, Paul C. (1993) Self-concept or self-esteem. Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 3(1), pp. 25-32.
Confusion exists with regard to the substantive difference between self-concept and self-esteem. In an endeavour to cast some light on this confusion two studies were conducted with 1193 preadolescents using modified versions of two commonly used instruments designed to measure self-concept and self-esteem. Exploratory factor analysis indicated that both these instruments measure specific facets of the same construct, namely self.-concept. General or global self-concept proved to be a difficult construct to measure in preadolescent students.
