Abstract

This study investigated and evaluated the self conceptions and self perceptions of females, specifically 12-14 year olds, both before and after being tested for their actual physical competence. This research is aimed to confirm and potentially understand why it has been theorized that females will consistently underestimate their physical competence. To do this I gave the girls surveys to be completed both before and after I had tested them for their physical competence values. I then evaluated the data based on how they thought that they would score compared to how they actually scored in response to all of the tests that I gave them. Hypothetically my data would confirm that females in this age range will underestimate their physical competence consistently which equates to an inability to form accurate comparisons in relation to physical abilities.
