Peculiarities of social comparison realized by schoolchildren towards their peers having different sociometric status are discussed. A new technique to identify the status of an individual as a subject oriented (social) comparison referent in a group is proposed. The results of the study aimed to identify primary and secondary schoolchildren’s preferences to use as subject oriented comparison referents their peers having a specific sociometric status are presented. It was shown that both primary and secondary schoolchildren significantly more often compare themselves with popular peers and very rarely with the rejected ones.

Keywords: social comparison, sociometric status, schoolchildren

Column: Social Psychology
