Self-esteem: Stability or Mutability?


Molchanova O.N.
PhD in Psychology, Assistant professor at the Psychology faculty, the State University "Higher School of Economics", Moscow, Russia

The article discusses two aspects of the problem: first, from the point of view of the mechanisms for self-evaluation and protection of a certain level of self-esteem, and second, in the framework of the life span psychology. The author presents results of an original research of the factors influencing specific features of self-esteem: retrospective evaluation of parents' sensitivity, somatic status, age and social context. She analyses the ways the subject maintains his or her self-esteem at an acceptable level, which counteract the negative impact of some conditions (health and age status). She also discusses changes in young adults' self-evaluation for the last twenty years.
