Description

Individuals develop contingencies of self-worth based on the way people they look up to (e.g., parental figures) value them. We investigated whether the parenting styles displayed by their parents would correlate with subjects’ self-worth contingencies as well as their likelihood of engaging in deviant behaviors typical for college students (e.g., underage drinking). We surveyed 88 college students and found that contingencies of self-worth were more strongly related to deviance than were parenting styles.
