Abstract

Since knowledge of self-stability is important to self-theory, a study as briefly outlined above seemed valuable. The four chief parts of the study to emerge are given below: 1. To investigate the stability of the self-concept of adolescents over one and two-year intervals. 2. To investigate the stability of the self-concept and its relationship to such factors as social status, intelligence, and maturation age. 3. To investigate the favorability of self-concept and to see if such things as social status, intelligence, and maturation age make for differences in favorability. 4. To investigate the differences between drop-outs and continuands when all were in grade ten for such factors as self-concept, intelligence, social status, and maturation age.
