Abstract

Three models of partial mediation were proposed and analyzed to examine self-construal as a partial mediator. A sample of 431 early adolescents completed a survey to measure cognitive competence, physical competence, social competence, general self-worth, and self-construal. It was expected that self-construal would partially mediate the relationship in which general self-worth is predicted by a subscale of competence (i.e., cognitive, physical, or social). The relationships between general self-worth and each competence, the relationships between self-construal and each competence, and the relationship between general self-worth and self-construal were all expected to be positive. Findings supported the hypotheses, such that self-construal did partially mediate the relationships proposed. The relationships specified were, as expected, found to be positive.

It was expected that self-construal would partially mediate the relationship in which general self-worth is predicted by a subscale of competence (i.e., cognitive, physical, or social). The relationships between general self-worth and each competence, the relationships between self-construal and each competence, and the relationship between general self-worth and self-construal were all expected to be positive. Findings supported the hypotheses, such that self-construal did partially mediate the relationships proposed. The relationships specified were, as expected, found to be positive.
