The objective of the present study was to understand the self-concept of 1 st year and final year of respective course early adulthood boys and girls of Jaipur. It was hypothesized that the self-concept of early adulthood with respect to gender and educational standard will differ significantly. A group of 500 early adulthood (250 boys&amp;250 girls) from six colleges were covered in the study and they were selected following multi-stage sampling technique. A Semi-structured Questionnaire and Self-concept Scale were used for data collection. The study was carried out in 2016-17. The mean values of overall self-concept were found to be 173.2 for early adulthood boys and 164.2 for early adulthood girls i.e., the self-concept of early adulthood boys was significantly higher compared to girls (p<.01). Further analysis of data revealed statistically significant difference (p<.001) between boys and girls with respect to components of self-concept like health and sex appropriateness, abilities, self-confidence, worthiness, present, past and future, beliefs and convictions, feeling of shame and guilt, and emotional component i.e., mean score of early adulthood boys were significantly higher than the means score of girls with respect to the said components of self-concept. On the contrary, girls were found to be significantly higher in beliefs and convictions components compared to boys. No significant difference was observed between boys and girls with respect to self acceptance and sociability components. So far as educational standard is considered, students of 1st year students were found to have higher mean score than the students of final year students in most of the components of self concept and significant difference was found in four components only like health and sex appropriateness, abilities, self-acceptance and emotional component.

Abstract


The objective of the present study was to understand the self-concept of 1 st year and final year of respective course early adulthood boys and girls of Jaipur. It was hypothesized that the self-concept of early adulthood with respect to gender and educational standard will differ significantly. A group of 500 early adulthood (250 boys&amp;250 girls) from six colleges were covered in the study and they were selected following multi-stage sampling technique. A Semi-structured Questionnaire and Self-concept Scale were used for data collection. The study was carried out in 2016-17. The mean values of overall self-concept were found to be 173.2 for early adulthood boys and 164.2 for early adulthood girls i.e., the self-concept of early adulthood boys was significantly higher compared to girls (p<.01). Further analysis of data revealed statistically significant difference (p<.001) between boys and girls with respect to components of self-concept like health and sex appropriateness, abilities, self-confidence, worthiness, present, past and future, beliefs and convictions, feeling of shame and guilt, and emotional component i.e., mean score of early adulthood boys were significantly higher than the means score of girls with respect to the said components of self-concept. On the contrary, girls were found to be significantly higher in beliefs and convictions components compared to boys. No significant difference was observed between boys and girls with respect to self acceptance and sociability components. So far as educational standard is considered, students of 1st year students were found to have higher mean score than the students of final year students in most of the components of self concept and significant difference was found in four components only like health and sex appropriateness, abilities, self-acceptance and emotional component.
