Abstract

The subject of the research presented in the article is the image of the physical self as a specific phenomenon of self-awareness. The authors provide a brief review of the main approaches to the problem in domestic and international psychology. The image of the physical self is considered as an integrative process in the context of the psychology of health. In this study, we studied the self-attitude to the image of the physical self in the process of comparing the subject’s characteristics of external attractiveness with a social standard, in the process of reflective self-esteem. The results of a pilot study focused on the study of qualities that indirectly reveal the subjective representation of a person about his/her body are presented. A correlation and variance analysis of data on the types of attitude to the body among girls and boys was carried out. The study clearly shows that high assessments of the functional characteristics positively correlate with the developing attitude of students to their bodies.
