This article dealt with the relationship of self-esteem (SE) and self-presentational styles. I predicted that those having high SE would present themselves in a self-enhancing fashion to emphasize positive attributes, while those having low SE would present themselves in a self-protective to avoid boastful self-description because of a fear of potential failure. One hundred and ten undergraduates responded to the questionnaire to measure SE, self-description, and self-presentation. Among those regarded as high or intermediate SE presented themselves by more frequently referring to their positive attributes than to their negative ones, but it was not observed in the self-presentation by those regarded as low SE.
