Abstract
This study examined the degree of body image satisfaction and its relationship with physical self concept among adolescents and young adults (n = 120) with normal-weight. Analysis of data indicated that majority of the participants were dissatisfied with their body image, with highest dissatisfaction in adult males. In contrast the adolescents with body image dissatisfaction significantly differed from those who were satisfied regarding their views about physical self. Implications of the findings are discussed. © 2014, National Academy of Psychology (NAOP) India.
