Assessing Self-Supporting Behaviors of Chinese Children
Abstract:Self-support (Zili) is a personality trait rooted in the Chinese culture. Based on the results of open-ended interviews, 2 dimensions, field and function related to external behavior and internal psychology, respectively, were examined in relation to school children's self-supporting behaviors. A survey was then constructed for assessing self-supporting behaviors of children aged between 6 and 12 years. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses showed that the factor structure of the survey was clear. The survey was found to be stable and internally consistent according to the reliability test.
