This situation can be interpreted as there is no significant difference between self-esteems of athlete students who play team or individual sports.
Self-esteem is aliking situation resulted from one's approving the self-concept reached by evaluating oneself.
Attitude, developed by individual regarding this created self-concept, determines also his/her self-esteem level.
Vincent (1976) and Solokun (1990) determined that athletes have a higher self-esteem (self-respect) level than nonathletes.
The relationship between self-esteem concept and sport was handled in so many studies.
Personal Information Form" built by researchers and "Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale" developed by Rosenberg (1965), adapted by Cuhadaroglu (1986) to Turkish was used for the purpose of data collection.
When analyzed the Table 1, while the average of participants' self-esteem points was found to be X=0.
According to this finding, when looking at the average of participants' self-esteem points, it was determined that participants had high self-esteem level.
This allows the conclusion that although there is a shared common core involving self-evaluation, there are still differences between the two self-esteems that render neither of them as redundant, owing to their different bases in the personal and spiritual identities of an individual.
In the case of hope, it is possible that its similarly strong correlations with both self-esteems may arise because hope tends to have both personal and spiritual connotations, whereby being able to attain goals or find ways to solve problems may be attributed to the self and to God.
The moderate correlation between the two self-esteems hints at a common core, while the distinction between God-centered self-esteem and self-esteem was quite clearly shown by the results from the CFAs, their different nomological networks, and God-centered self-esteem's incremental validity for depression, hope, optimism, and stress, beyond self-esteem.
The present study was conducted to develop and validate a God-centered self-esteem scale that assesses an individual's evaluations of the self in the context of God's love, availability, and ability to help.
Self-esteem is an important psychological construct that has garnered burgeoning amounts of attention in research from the 1960s to these recent times (Mruk, 2006).
Different measures for self-esteem exist alongside its various conceptualisations.
The ability to define and measure self-esteem has facilitated the study of relationships between self-esteem and important psychological variables that are significant in daily life.
