Assessing the Rosenberg Self-Esteem scale dimensionality and items functioning in relation to self-efficacy and attachment styles

The Structure of the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale: A Cross-Cultural Meta-Analysis

The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES; Rosenberg, 1965) intends to measure a single dominant factor representing global self-esteem. However, several studies have identified some form of

Dimensionality of the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and Its Relationships With the Three-and the Five-Factor Personality Models

Comparison with the Revised NEO-Personality Inventory demonstrated that Neuroticism correlated strongly and Extraversion and Conscientiousness moderately with the RSES, and other NEO–PI–R facets were also moderately related with self-esteem.

Modeling of the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale: Identifying the Wording and Arrangement Effects among Items.

The Self-Esteem Scale was originally assumed by the author (Rosenberg, 1965) to be one dimensional. Applying exploratory factor analysis to this scale of 10 items, some researchers have observed one

Simultaneous administration of the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale in 53 nations: exploring the universal and culture-specific features of global self-esteem.

Age, personality, and the spontaneous self-concept.

Self-esteem was related to low Neuroticism and high Extraversion, but was unrelated to age; social structural variables like age are reflected in the content of the spontaneous self-concept, but personality traits appear to be more important in explaining self-esteem.

The Estonian Self-Consciousness Scale and its relation to the five-factor model of personality.

It is concluded that all the SCS subscales can be sufficiently well interpreted in terms of the Big Five model of personality dimensions--PrivSC and PubSC appear to describe some variations of theBig Five themes that are not fully elaborated by the NEO-PI rather than being completely independent domains of individual differences.

Confirmatory factor analysis was used to evaluate alternative 1- and 2-factor models and to test hypotheses about how the factors vary with reading ability and age and to evaluate whether factors associated with positively and negatively worded items are substantively meaningful or artifactors.

Self‐esteem stability: the importance of basic self‐esteem and competence strivings for the stability of global self‐esteem

The stability of self‐esteem has been increasingly emphasized as crucial for understanding the role and the functioning of self‐esteem. The present study compares two conceptualizations of
