(2003) defined self-esteem as how much value people place on themselves and it is the evaluative component of self-knowledge. There are two levels of self-esteem which were high self-esteem and low self-esteem. To be exact, high self-esteem was referred to an accurate, justified, balanced appreciation of one’s worth as a person and one’s successes and competencies. Meanwhile, low self-esteem can be either an accurate, well-founded understanding of one’s shortcomings as a person or a distorted, even pathological sense of insecurity and inferiority (Baumeister et. al, 2003).
In Banaji & Prentice (1994), research has portrayed social comparison as opportunity for self-enhancement. Individuals determine their own self worth based on how they stack up against others. Individuals have an internal drive to gain accurate self-evaluations across a variety of domains. In the absence of objective measures for self-verification and self-evaluation, individuals compare themselves to others in their social context to figure out how they are doing. Self-comparison essentially has two specific types: upward social comparison and downward social comparison.
Gender is so pervasive as part of our everyday routine lives and applied within every aspect of society. This is why it’s is easily forgotten that gender is created, therefore socially constructed since the time of birth in most cases. Furthermore, it refers to the maleness or femaleness of the individual, those behaviors, characteristics, and expectations of how males and females are supposed to act; all individuals unconsciously do gender. However, this may become restrictive in many ways. There are precise dealings that only women will experience while there are also precise dealings that only men will experience thus creating gender inequality.
For example, if someone emplaces the idea that one is overweight in one’s head, one is going to possibly take that into account when looking in the mirror. Self-concept is also said to contribute to how we may behave in the future by setting up goals that reflect our opinions of ourselves. In some instances, individuals may believe that they will be a successful doctor and, because of that self-concept, it becomes reality. This is known as self-fulfilling prophecies. Self-esteem is the worth of what one takes from one’s self-awareness and self-concept.

The argumentative essay “Grades and Self-Esteem” by Randy Moore, professor of biology at the University of Minnesota. Moore argues that teachers should consider the grading standards of the students rather than the self esteem. Grades come from their academic performance whereas self esteem from their creativity, confidence, and also by nature.

Sociometer theory proposes that self-esteem is a barometer of one's past, present, and future perceived relational value. People high in self-esteem (HSEs) feel that they were, are, and will be valued by others, whereas people low in self-esteem (LSEs) doubt their value as relational partners, and project these doubts onto future relationships (see Leary et al., 1995; Murray, Holmes, & Collins, 2006).
