The purpose of this study was to develop state self-esteem scale, based on the self-esteem scale by Rosenberg (1965). Study 1 showed that the new state scale had high internal consistency. Results also indicated that state self-esteem had a positive correlation with senses of being included by others, and a negative one with the sense of being excluded. In Study 2, an experiment was conducted that used an evaluation feedback. Results showed that state self-esteem increased after positive evaluation, and decreased after negative evaluation by others. In Study 3, the correlation between state self-esteem and state anxiety was examined for discriminant validity. Results indicated the correlation was negative. Thus, the new scale was shown to have good reliability and validity.
