Authors: Tsoy, Elena
Issue Date: 13-Aug-2010
Abstract: The study investigated whether and how various levels of loneliness, anxiety, and depression were related to various strategies of impression management among 100 women in Kyrgyzstan. Three analyses were performed upon the data. Analysis of frequencies was used in order to examine the most and least used strategic self-presentations by the respondents. Independent sample T-test was conducted to examine any differences in the usage of strategic self-presentations, as well as reported levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness controlling for demographic variables, such as marital and partner status, and others. Finally, to examine absence or presence of relationships between variables a correlational analysis was performed. Level of loneliness was significantly related to increased anxiety and depression, which supports prior research. Moreover, the study showed that reported levels of loneliness, anxiety, and depression related to having/not having an intimate partner, rather than to marital status. Finally, it was found that usage of particular self-presentation strategies was related to levels of loneliness and anxiety in females.
