The role of self-consciousness in self-esteem and self-efficacy of undergraduate students
Self has been found to play a key role in psychological studies and is a central aspect for many mental health care practices in India as well as abroad. While acknowledging its importance, the current study aims to explore the role of self-consciousness in self-esteem and self-efficacy among undergraduate students living in the Noida region of Uttar Pradesh-India. Two hundred and nineteen undergraduate participants between eighteen to twenty-three years of age (mean = 19.50, SD = 0.93) residing in the Noida region for more than ten years were purposively selected for this study. Out of these, one hundred and twelve were females and, one hundred and seven were males. Results revealed that social anxiety as a construct of self-consciousness was significantly associated with self-esteem and self-efficacy. Consequently, social anxiety was a significant predictor of both self-esteem and self-efficacy. The current findings point out a strong relationship between social anxiety, self-esteem and self-efficacy.
