AbstractThe aim of the present study was to find the relationship between perceived body image dissatisfaction (PBID) and all psychological well-being measures i.e., Self Esteem, Anxiety and Depression in the age group of 15-25 years. Assessment tools used were The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES), The Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HAM-A), The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II), The Eating Attitude Test (EAT-26), Body Satisfaction Questionnaire (BSQ), and Body Mass Index. All psychological well-being measures were seen as signiﬁcantly associated with all proportions of PBID. Self-esteem was found to be negatively correlated with PBID. Depression scores were found to have a strong positive correlation with PBID. Anxiety and abnormal eating behavior were seen to have a moderate positive correlation with PBID. Males were found to have higher level of self-esteem and lower levels of depression and anxiety than females. Females reported larger body image dissatisfaction as compared to males.
