The MSEI differentiates between "truly high" and "defensively high" self-esteem. Based on a coherent model of self-concept and self-esteem, the MSEI measures global self-esteem and its eight components: competence, lovability, likability, personal power, self-control, moral self-approval, body appearance and body functioning.


Two unique scales, one easy-to-use rating form

  • Identity Integration scale measures global self-concept.
  • Defensive Self-Enhancement scale differentiates between truly high and defensively high self-esteem.
  • The two-part carbonless rating form enables you to quickly score results.
  • Normed on 785 college students, the MSEI features scales that have good internal consistency reliability coefficients.
