Abstract

This study attempts to derive, describe, and compare
some aspects of the cognised and the ideal self-pictures
of some children in their last year of primary end first
year of secondary school. Three measures - a Check List,
Rogers' Test of Personality Adjustment, and the Michigan
Picture Story Test - considered to differ clearly In the
degree of their directness of approach, were used to
obtain data about their self-pictures from 34 boys and
36 girls fulfilling certain criteria of selection. The
data are analysed in relation to variables such as sex
and educational level. The findings are discussed in
relation primarily to personal adequacy, social attitudes
and adequacy,, and interpersonal relationships. Differences
in problem areas, attitudes to authority and peers, and
between the pictures of the ideal self, the cognised self
and the "projected" self were found associated with
variables such as sex, intelligence, school and educational
level. The findings of this study are juxtaposed with
those of similar or relevant studies.
