Comparative study of the physical self-perception of students studying in private schools and Govt Schools of Ladakh


Author(s): Padma Lamo

Abstract: Emotion A self-perception is an awareness you have about own through, action, or appearance. It is how you think other people view you. Our self-perception determines our behaviour – if we think we are inadequate, we act that way. If we think we are splendid, we act that way. The pathway forward towards happiness and authenticity is not determined by something outside ourselves, It’s determined by our own thinking, our own inner process, our self-perception. So if our way forward feels blocked, it is blocked by the way we perceive ourselves, by our fears and how they cause us to act toward themselves. We take forward with us our unhealed inner negative perceptions and recreate the same situations over and over. We are stooped by what we think our needs are – what we think we want and by all the means we employed to try to escape from our fears and self –hatred. We are stopped by thinking that if we work towards a degree, find a better job, marry this person, attend this class, try out this new way, buy this new possessions, earn this much more money, began yet another new project – that we will find our way. We are stopped by our lack of compassion for ourselves, by our self-loathing. It is fear that creates this self-perception. Some of many kind of perception area academic, social and artistic in this we will focus on physical self-perception. Physical self-perception refers to the way you view your physical self. Four areas of physical self-perception are strength, fitness skill and body attractiveness. People with good physical self- perception are happy with their current strength and fitness level, they feel that the skills that they have are adequate to meet their needs, and they like the way look. We know that people who have positive physical self- perception more likely to be active than those who do not have such good perception of themselves. It was hypothesized that there may not be any significant difference in the physical self- perception amongst the students of different regions. Subject in this study were 84 students (20 government school boys, 20 private school boys, 21 private school girls, and 23government school girls) who are studying in leh Ladakh School. The ages of student’s were between 15 to 20 year only. The physical self- description questionnaire (PSDQ) was used to measure subjects, physical self-concept. The PSDQ consist of 40 items which under 11 scales that is appearance, strength, endurance, flexibility, health, coordination, physical activity, body fat, sport competence, global physical self-concept, and self-esteem. After analysis and interpretation of data it was found that in some variable or factor there were no significant difference among four groups self-perception toward physical activity, strength, coordination, flexibility, physical self- concept and self-esteem. However in some variable it was seen that there was significant difference in physical self-perception toward body fat, physical activity, endurance, sport competence, health and appearance since f ratio value observe was significant at 0.05 level. As f value obtained establish significant difference among groups post hoc mean comparison was made to exactly find the different between groups. post hoc mean comparison reveals that there is significant different between private school (boys) and government school (girls) student regarding perception toward physical activity, and sport competency, as mean difference o (3.6152, 2.9505) is significant at 0.05 level. It was also revealed that there was an significant difference between private school boys and government school (girls) and also government school (girls) and government school (boys) as mean difference of (-5.6000, -4.8282) is significant at 0.05 level.
