Two studies are reported which describe the development and validation of a 20-item measure of self-concept clarity for Hong Kong Chinese adolescents. The ensuing scale is shown to be internally consistent, unidimensional, and relatively free of social desirability bias. As expected, scores of the developed scale varied directly with scores of an indigenous measure of self-esteem and inversely with scores of a measure of social anxiety.
