AbstractYoung adulthood is a phase where one tends to develop a high level of competition as this is the age where they start to live their lives independently without any peer support. Hence at this age having a good self-esteem is highly appreciated so that an individual can compete and live his life, and if he or she doesn’t not have good self-esteem then their chance to live a healthy lifestyle will be disturbed. In the present study an attempt has been made to find out the self-esteem of the young adult age ranges from 20 – 30 years among different sexes. Self-esteem questionnaire of Dr. Morris Rosenberg has been used. The study has made a comparison between males and females of young adults age ranges from 20 to 30 years old. Result indicates that both Male and Female groups have shown high scores in Self-esteem. In comparison between males and females (Male mean= 17.70 and Female Mean= 19.00). It has been observed that females are showing higher self-esteem in comparison to male in the present study. The Standard Deviation (S.D) of both the groups (S.D Male= 3.65 and S.D Female= 5.30) have shown that females are showing greater variability of score in comparison to male. t-test (1.106) has not been found statistically significant. So, the present study has shown greater score and variability among the females in terms of self-esteem. So, the self-esteem of young adults has been estimated in the present group and it may be concluded that females are showing greater self-esteem in comparison to male in the above-mentioned age group.
