    Abstract

    We argue in this paper for distinguishing two dimensions of global self-esteem, self-competence and self-liking. Studies I and 2 identify a corresponding pair of factors in Rosenberg's (1965) Self-Esteem Scale. Studies 3 and 4 examine the predictive value of the two-dimensional approach to self-esteem as reflected in the unique associations of self-competence and self-liking with negative life events and word recognition.
