Abstract

The paper illustrates a study on adolescents living in Golfo di Policastro, an area in a Southern Italy Region. Following the path of the youth research program promoted by Italian Institute IARD, our contribution focuses on the analysis of the Self-image dimension that was surveyed using a battery of OSIQ items. Data analysis relied on the sequential application of factor analysis and cluster analysis. The result is the identification of a self-image typology to explore the relationships with self-satisfaction in everyday life.
