Self Esteem

  1. 1. Self-esteem Created by Sara Johnson
  2. 2. Self-esteem : a confidence and satisfaction in oneself : self-respect
  3. 3. According to psychologists, self-esteem refers to a person’s self evaluation. How every individual sees themselves, whether it be important, smart, worthwhile, or just the opposite of each of those. They say healthy self-esteem is not bragging, but knowing in your mind that you have a lot of self-worth.
  4. 4. I personally chose self-esteem as a topic mainly because of my diverse group of friends. As a whole they are lovely human beings, but there are incidences where they themselves don’t realize that and don’t give their minds or bodies the self-respect that they deserve. You can always tell the difference between someone with low or high self- esteem, especially inside the classroom.
  5. 5. Self-Evaluation According to the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory test, I scored between a average and a somewhat above average self esteem. To be honest, this seems about right to me. When I think of myself Freshmen, Sophomore, and Junior year, I myself have changed as a whole and my self-esteem has done a total 360.
  6. 6. “I finally got myself to a place where I let people's insults roll off my back. It doesn't matter if people like me or don't like me. I know who my friends are, and that's what matters.” -Anonymous (via survey) The first 5 questions belonging to the survey I made were (in order): 1.) On a scale of 1-5, with five being the highest amount of self-esteem, of the majority of your friends do they have high or low self-esteem? 2.) What causes low self-esteem? 3.) What causes high self-esteem? 4.) Can your family affect whether or not you have high or low self-esteem? 5.) Do you consider yourself to have high self-esteem or low self-esteem? • The results with #1, were: 40% percent said 3, 12% said 5, 36% said 4, 4% said 1, and 8% said 2. • The results with #2, were: 92% said “People always putting you down.” Second up was, 44% said “Having no friends.” • The results with #3, were: 88% said, “Surrounding yourself with positive and encouraging people.” • The results with #4, were: 96% said “Yes.” • The results with #5, were: 60% said, “Somewhere in the middle.” 24% said high, and `6% said low.
  7. 7. Questions 6-9 were: 6.) Can alcohol help raise a person's self-esteem? 7.) Has there ever been an incident where you, or a friend, made a decision they normally wouldn't when drinking? 8.) Can low self-esteem lead to suicide? 9.) Have you or a friend ever contemplated suicide because of low self- esteem? (This is anonymous • The results with #6, were: 56% said “No.” • The results with #7, were: 64% said “Yes.” • The results with #8, were: 100% said “Yes.” • The results with #9, were: 64% said “No.”
  8. 8. Question #10 was a answer only question and it was, “Why do you think you have low or high self-esteem?” The answers varied: • “My Dad can be a jerk.” • “Because idiot's decide they need to make fun of someone to raise their self-esteem and by doing that they lower someone else's.” • “I think that I have high self-esteem because I am not bullied on or picked on by others constantly and I am friends with people who actually like me and care about what I do with myself.” • “Well I'm a bit in the middle. So I guess for high self-esteem is when people have good comments about me and things like that. for low self-esteem is when I hear people talk about me behind my back or don't like that way I look or my weight sometimes. So I think I'm kind of more towards the low self-esteem side.” • “I know that I'm above average. I know that I can handle what I need to. I know my friend's have my back. I know I can count on my family to help me whenever I need something.” • “not good enough at sports”
  9. 9. RESULTS As a result of this power point presentation and the answers to my survey, I definitely believe that teenagers are under a lot of different pressure, but quite a few of them are sure of themselves. Things that can help lower their self-esteem are the people at school, their parents, and their physical appearance.
