WANG, C.K.J. ...et al., 2015. Latent profile analysis of the physical self-description among Chinese Adolescents. Current Psychology, 34(2), pp 282-293.
The purposes of this study were to validate the Physical Self-Description Questionnaire (PSDQ-S) and examine the physical self-description profiles using Latent Profile Analysis with a Chinese sample. A total of 744 secondary school students in China took part in the study. While the results provided support for internal
reliability and discriminant validity of the PSDQ-S, they indicated convergent validity
required further testing. In addition, three distinct profiles were identified with unique
physical self-concept and different levels of physical activity participation. The study
showed the PDSQ-S is useful in differentiating groups of adolescents with different levels of physical self-concept.
