The world’s most overrated athletes

In an age when many people still consider themselves to be ‘average’, it is not surprising that some people may think they have a certain level of self esteem.

However, for some, it is even more important to understand how the world view of them may actually be related to their self esteem, according to a new study by a team of psychologists.

While we may have a sense of who we are based on our appearance, we are not always clear on what that perception actually is, the researchers said.

For example, some people might have a high self-esteem because they are well educated, while others may have low self-confidence because they have experienced adversity, they added.

In a new research paper published in the journal Psychological Science, the team of researchers led by Dr John McQuillan of the University of Cambridge in the UK, from the Centre for Mental Health and Social Policy, examined the influence of self-worth on how people view their appearance and self-image.

Their findings showed that self-acceptance is strongly related to how people viewed their self-status, self-perception and their appearance, as well as their self respect.

“There are plenty of positive associations between self esteem and many aspects of a person’s life, such as job performance, social life and their health,” Dr McQuampan said.

“However, for a large proportion of people, their self worth has been negatively affected by their appearance.

This can lead to poor health, social isolation and lower quality of life, and could even contribute to depression and anxiety.”

According to Dr McWhinstan, one of the most striking findings in the paper was that the positive association between self- esteem and self esteem is particularly strong in the elderly.

“In people aged 80 and above, there was a strong positive association with self-evaluation, but for the elderly it was less pronounced,” he said.

The researchers found that when people looked at photos of people with various self-rated traits, they saw that those with high self esteem rated their self as more self-respectful.

However, the strongest positive associations with self esteem were seen for those who rated their appearance positively.

“The relationship between self worth and self respect was particularly strong for older people,” Dr MacQuillam said.

According to the researchers, their results were consistent with other research that has linked self-efficacy, or a positive outlook on one’s appearance, to higher levels of self confidence and well-being.

The research was carried out with a sample of 2,065 participants from the UK and Germany, aged between 18 and 80.

The study was funded by the European Research Council (ERC) in the form of a grant for research on the effects of positive attitudes on health._____
