Everyone has certain ideas about the ideal of the most valuable personality traits. People are guided by these qualities in the process of self-education. What qualities do you value most in people?? These ideas are not the same for different people, and therefore the results of self-education do not coincide. What are your ideas about the ideal? The following task will help you to understand this, which is done in two steps.
Divide a sheet of paper into four equal parts, label each part with the Roman numerals I, II, III, IV.
Four groups of words are given, which characterize the positive qualities of people. In each set of qualities, you should emphasize those that are more meaningful and valuable to you personally and that you prefer to others. What are these qualities and how many of them – everyone decides for themselves.
Read carefully the words of the first qualities. Write the qualities that are most valuable to you in the column with their numbers on the left side of the page. Now continue with the second set of qualities – and so on to the end. As a result, you should get four sets of ideal qualities.

Look carefully at the personality traits you wrote out of the first sentence and find among them the ones you possess. Yes really. Circle the numbers with it. Now move on to the second set of qualities, then the third and fourth.
Process test results
Calculate how much you found with you real qualities (R).
Count the number ideal qualities written by you ( AND; qualities written out in the first level), and then calculate their percentage:
|Insufficiently low||Briefly||Below average||Average||Above average||High||Insufficiently high|
Read the 20 personality traits carefully: Accuracy, kindness, cheerfulness, perseverance, intelligence, truthfulness, integrity, independence, modesty, sociability, pride, conscientiousness, indifference, laziness, conceit, cowardice, greed, distrust, selfishness, impertinence.
In the column" Ideal"Write under number (rank) 1 the quality of the above that you value most in people, under number 2 – the quality that you value a little less, etc., in descending order of importance. At number 13, indicate that quality – a defect – of the above that you could most easily forgive people for (after all, as you know, there are no ideal people, everyone has flaws, but you can forgive some of them, but not ), at number 14 – the harder to forgive defect, etc. at number 20 – the most disgusting quality of people from your point of view.
In the column" I AM"Write down under (rank) 1 the quality from above that is most developed in you personally (whether merit or demerit), under number 2 – the quality that you have developed a little less, etc. . in descending order, below the last numbers – those qualities that you have or have not developed the least.
Sample form for the test
Process test results
In column #3, the respondent must calculate the difference in rank numbers for each quality written out. For examplea quality like "accuracy in the first column (ideal) is in the first place and in the second place (I) – in the 7. place; D will be equal to 1-7 = -6; qualities such as "Principledness" in both the first and the second column, in the third place there are. In this case D will be equal to 3-3 = 0; such qualities as "indifference" will be equal to 1-7 = -6 in the first column are on the 20. rank and in the second – to 2. In this case D equal to 20-2 = 18 etc.
Column 5 calculates the amount d 2, thus:
d 2 = d 1 2 + d 2 2 + d 3 2 +… + d 20 2;
- n– the number of compared pairs
In the case n = 20, the formula has the following form:
The values R Will be in the range [-1; +1].
|Insufficiently low||Short||Below average||Average||Above average||High||Insufficiently high|
|[-1; 0]||(0; 0,2]||(0,8; 1]|
Interpreting test results
Self-esteem may be optimal and Suboptimal. With optimal, adequate self-esteem, the subject correlates his abilities and skills correctly, is quite critical with himself, tries to really look at his failures and successes, tries to set achievable goals that are feasible in practice. He approaches the evaluation of what he has achieved not only with his own standards, but also tries to predict how other people will react to it: Work colleagues and relatives. In other words, sufficient self-esteem is the result of a constant search for a true measure, d.h. without overestimating too much, but also without being too critical of their communication, behavior, activities, experiences. This self-esteem is best suited for certain conditions and situations.
Self-esteem refers to the optimal. high level" and" above average"(A person rightly values himself, respects himself, is satisfied with himself) as well as" average level"(A person respects himself, but knows his weaknesses and strives for self-improvement, self-development).
Self-esteem may be suboptimal – too high or too low.
Due to insufficiently high self-esteem a person develops a false idea of himself, an idealized image of his personality and abilities, of his value for others, for a common cause. In such cases, a person ignores failures in order to maintain the usual high estimation of himself, his actions and deeds. There is an acute emotional "repulsion" of everything that disturbs the self-image. Perception of reality is distorted, attitude towards it becomes insufficient – purely emotional. The rational core of the evaluation is completely omitted. Therefore, a fair comment is perceived as nagging and an objective evaluation of work results – as unjustly underestimated. Failure appears as a result of intrigue or unfavorable circumstances of a person and is in no way dependent on the actions of the person him/herself.
Man with overestimated insufficient self-esteem does not want to admit that all this is due to own mistakes, laziness, lack of knowledge, ability or wrong behavior. A severe emotional state arises – the affect of inadequacy, the main reason of which is the persistence of the prevailing stereotype of overestimation of one’s own personality. If high self-esteem is plastic, changes according to the real state of affairs – it increases with success and decreases with failure, then this can contribute to the development of the personality, as it must do everything to achieve their goals, develop their skills and their will.
Self-esteem can be underestimated., so under the actual abilities of the individual. This usually leads to self-doubt, shyness and lack of daring, inability to realize their abilities. Such people do not set hard-to-achieve goals, limit themselves to solving everyday tasks, are too self-critical.
Too high or too low self-esteem disturbs the process of self-management, distorts self-control. This is especially noticeable in communication, where people with high and low self-esteem are the cause of conflicts. At high self-confidence Conflict arises from a disdainful attitude toward other people and disrespectful treatment of them, too harsh and unreasonable statements in their speech, intolerance of others’ opinions, arrogance and arrogance. Low self-criticism prevents them from even noticing how they offend others with arrogance and irrefutable judgments.
At Low self-esteem Conflicts can arise due to the excessive criticality of these people. They make high demands on themselves and even more on others, do not forgive a single mistake or fault, and tend to constantly emphasize the shortcomings of others. And although this is done with the best of intentions, it still leads to conflicts because only a few can tolerate systematic "sawing". If they see only bad in you and constantly point it out, then there is aversion to the source of such assessments, thoughts and actions.
The influence of inadequacy arises as an attempt of people with high self-esteem to protect themselves from real circumstances and preserve their usual self-esteem. This leads to a breakdown of relationships with other people. Experiencing resentment and injustice allows you to feel good about yourself, to stay on the right level in your own eyes, to feel hurt or offended. This elevates a person in his own eyes and eliminates self-dissatisfaction. The need for high self-esteem is satisfied and there is no need to change it, d. h. to deal with self-management. Inevitably conflicts arise with people who have different ideas about this person, his abilities, possibilities and values for society. The affect of inadequacy is a psychological defense, it is a temporary measure, as it does not solve the main problem, which is a radical change in less than optimal self-esteem, which is the cause of unfavorable interpersonal relationships.
These techniques allow us to solve several other research and practical problems. Here are some of them:
I. There are different forms of human activity: communication, behavior, activity, experiences. Personality can also be seen as a subject of self-management. Since the simultaneous implementation of all these forms of activity is difficult, man shows interest in one or two areas of his life. In fact, everyone has observed that "in the world of people", "in a closed world", "in the world of affairs" and "in the world of feelings live. It would be natural to assume that in the execution of the technique people choose more qualities in the area that interests them more. This allows Find out what their interests are, what their preferences are. To do this, it is necessary to calculate how many "ideal" qualities have been written out for each of the four blocks and to compare the numbers obtained. The leader will be the level of human activity, where above all "ideal" and "real" Characteristics as well as their percentage are collected.
II. You can get an idea of the value orientations of a group which differs from others in age, sex, profession; for this purpose it is necessary to calculate how many people have chosen this or that quality and with what importance. If this figure is converted into percentages, then it opens up an interesting possibility to compare groups according to the preference of personality traits, according to the degree of importance of individual traits. The ranking of these traits according to the number of people who chose this trait shows what place it has in the integral system of ideas about personality.
III. You can get it an idea of how each individual differs from other people in his or her value orientation. To do this, you must create an average "portrait" of the value orientations of the group to which he belongs. Then you need a qualitative analysis of the qualities he chose and the personality traits that are most often found in the whole group. Thus, against the background of group preferences, individual characteristics can be identified.

Online tests are becoming increasingly popular among visitors to the World Wide Web due to their availability and prevalence and the growing interest in psychology. You help everyone understand their self-esteem.
Why are people so often insecure? Regardless of social status, age, education and physical data, many women and men suffer from low self-esteem.
And this is not surprising – it can be too difficult not to compare oneself with others. There are always more successful, more intelligent, more beautiful people. The spirit of competition plays a cruel joke on us and distorts the process of recognizing the individual as a unique, unrepeatable phenomenon.
Self-esteem depends on the environment and upbringing of the individual. Strangely, the higher the intelligence and the better physical data, the more we tend to underestimate our strengths and worry about shortcomings.
The ability to enjoy life and accept ourselves as nature created us plays one of the main roles in building a person’s self-esteem.
To determine your self-confidence, the easiest way is to take an online test designed to explore personal self-esteem.

Every person has certain ideas about himself: how smart, handsome, sociable, brave he is and able to achieve results. A person’s self-esteem has a great influence on our behavior and decisions, achievements, and thus on our whole life. This is why psychology pays so much attention to the process of its research.
Psychological tests to determine self-esteem should reveal the objective degree of self-assessment as a whole. Nowadays, there are many methods to correct self-determination, but in order to change your image according to these methods, you must first determine at what level a person’s self-esteem is located.
For a person with low self-esteem it is extremely difficult to achieve in life, he is hindered by a variety of complexes and self-doubt. Psychological tests help to identify problems related to the assessment of your ego, so that in the future these problems can be solved either independently or with the help of psychologists.

Self-assessment of students. Tests
Afanasyeva Rimma Akhatovna, teacher of social studies, MCOU "Secondary school Unyugansk Nr. 1", Unyugan Settlement, Khanty-Mansen-Yugra Autonomous Okrug
Description: I bring to your attention four tests to determine self-esteem in students with keys to processing. The teacher gives the students the key to work on after they mark the answers to the questions in the test and calculate the score. Processing the results of the exam can be written on the blackboard or on the presentation slide, if it is provided for the lesson.
Purpose: The tests are primarily aimed at social educators, but they are also interesting for class teachers, psychologists, sociologists, parents and children.
Relevance: The relevance of these tests is due to the fact that most teachers and parents do not pay due attention to some aspects and personality traits. One of these factors is self-esteem. The dynamics of self-esteem will help not only to improve your results in the learning process, but also to establish your position in society. Self-esteem depends on social factors such as relationships with others, criticality, self-development, attitudes toward success and failure. Self-esteem influences personality development and effective human action. A false assessment of oneself arises because of a discrepancy in a person’s abilities. This is often the main reason for inappropriate behavior (emotional breakdowns, increased anxiety, etc.).). An objective expression of self-esteem manifests itself in how a person evaluates the abilities and achievements of others (with an overestimated self-esteem, a person begins to underestimate the results of others). In our time, improving the quality of education and knowledge acquisition is still relevant. In order to identify the reasons for student failure, student personality traits must be considered, and self-esteem undoubtedly has the greatest impact on learning success at any age in school.
Goal: Identify the dynamics of self-esteem in the learning process and the personality formation of a teenager.
Tasks: Select methods for studying students’ self-esteem; interpret the data obtained, conduct an analysis; formulate conclusions based on the test results obtained.
Preparation and Materials: the teacher prepares a test to check the students’ self-esteem, thinks about how to process the results and how to provide the children with the key to the test result.
