Abstract
The in-depth interview of 10 Chinese college students found out four themes related to Chinese students’ self-concept formation in the world emerging economic power. These themes are: First, college students are viewing themselves more Western-self than Eastern-self. Second, half of the interviewees are still conforming to the traditional interdependent self-construal. Third, college students tend to have high self-esteem. Fourth, compared with female students, male students are viewing themselves more Western and have higher self-esteem. The paper aims at providing a deeper understanding of the mentality change in terms of self-concept and self-esteem of today’s college students for educators.
