Abstract
Guided by Bronfenbrenner’s (1979, 1989) Ecological Systems Model and Rose-Krasnor’s (1997) Social Competence Prism Model, this thesis examined the implications of self-reported shyness for early adolescent children in Vietnam. Specifically, the study examined the interactions among multiple ecological factors including self-reported shyness and social self-perceptions (individual-level); perceived peer rejection and perceived parenting behaviors (micro-environment level); as well as gender norms and social contexts (macro-environment level). To accomplish these goals, data from self-report questionnaires of 415 middle-school children from urban and rural areas in Vietnam were analyzed with moderated regression analysis. Results showed that higher levels of self-reported shyness predicted higher levels of peer rejection, higher levels of harsh-punitive parenting, and more negative social self-perceptions for both boys and girls in both urban and rural contexts. Implications of shyness in contemporary Vietnamese society and suggestions for intervention and future research were presented.
