The Relationship Between the Self and the Students’ Performance: A Culture Perspective
The current study examines the effects of the self on the students’ performance in Australia. Using 160 students at postgraduate level and using the scale developed by Singelis, T. M. (1994) to measure the self, I found support of the hypothesis. The self had a significant impact on the students’ performance. Specially, the performance was depended on the type of self. For example, the independent self was significantly associated with a high performance, whereas interdependent self was significantly relevant to low performance. I found also that individualism/collectivism had moderated effects on the relationship between the self and the students’ performance.
