Abstract:

The intent of the present study is to examine the relationship between egocentrism and depressive symptoms in young adults. One hundred and fifty-two undergraduate students (53 males, 99 females) from the University of Ottawa (Canada), whose ages ranged from 18 to 25 years, completed the Adolescent Egocentrism and Sociocentrism Scale and the Beck Depression Inventory. As predicted, young adults with high egocentrism showed significantly more depressive symptoms than those with low egocentrism. Results are discussed in light of the literature on depression in young people.
