Lifespan Self-Esteem Scale

 


The Lifespan Self-Esteem Scale is a 4-item measure of self-esteem. The items are rated on a 5-point scale.

Self-esteem is a dimension of self-concept. Self-esteem is the value people place on themselves. We learn our value in various social contexts. Self-esteem is also related to the dimension of self-concept called self-efficacy.

Format

The items are presented with pictures of faces representing five different responses. (1 = really sad, 2 = sad, 3 = neutral, 4 = happy, 5 = really happy). The response options are also illustrated with faces depicting the appropriate feeling (really sad = crying face, sad = slight frown, neutral = flat mouth, happy = slight smile, really happy = open-mouthed smile).

Sample item

1. How do you feel about yourself?
