Abstract
This study was conducted to investigate the relationship between perceived popularity, sociometric popularity and prosocial behaviour. To examine popularity 154 children were presented with a roster of their classmates and asked to nominate whom they liked, whom they disliked, whom they believed to be popular and whom they believed to be unpopular. To examine prosocial behaviour children were asked to fill out a questionnaire regarding their own behaviour in different situations. The popularity data and the prosocial behaviour data were analysed using one-way- and two-ways- ANOVA-tests, Pearson's correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis. The analysis of the data showed poor relations between sociometric and perceived... (More)
This study was conducted to investigate the relationship between perceived popularity, sociometric popularity and prosocial behaviour. To examine popularity 154 children were presented with a roster of their classmates and asked to nominate whom they liked, whom they disliked, whom they believed to be popular and whom they believed to be unpopular. To examine prosocial behaviour children were asked to fill out a questionnaire regarding their own behaviour in different situations. The popularity data and the prosocial behaviour data were analysed using one-way- and two-ways- ANOVA-tests, Pearson's correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis. The analysis of the data showed poor relations between sociometric and perceived popularity. Furthermore the study shows that prosocial behaviour only partly constitutes perceived popularity. These results imply that sociometric and perceived popularity should be separated. Moreover the results show that there is only a moderate relation between prosocial behaviour and perceived popularity. Keywords: perceived popularity, sociometric popularity, prosocial behaviour.
