Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om det fanns några skillnader mellan tjejer och killar gällande självkänsla, kroppsuppfattning och träningsvanor. Syftet var vidare att undersöka om det fanns någon samvariation mellan ungdomars träningsvanor, självkänsla och kroppsbild. Undersökningen gjordes på 41 tjejer och 53 killar i gymnasiet, medelåldern var 17 år. Deltagarna fick svara på en enkät som mätte begreppen "självkänsla", "kroppsuppfattning" samt hur ofta ungdomarna utförde fysisk aktivitet. Resultat visade att det fanns signifikanta skillnader mellan könen. Killar tenderade till att ha en mer positiv självkänsla och kroppsuppfattning samt träna oftare. Resultat av korrelationen på killar visade ett positivt samband mellan självkänsla och kroppsuppfattning. Korrelationen som gjordes på tjejer visade på signifikanta samband mellan självkänsla och kroppsuppfattning och ett negativt samband mellan kroppsuppfattning och BMI

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there were any differences between boys and girls regarding self-esteem, body image and exercise habits. The aim was to explore whether there were correlations between young people's exercise habits, self-esteem and body image. The study was conducted on 41 girls and 53 boys in high school, and the average age was 17 years. Participants were asked to answer a questionnaire that measured the concepts of "self-esteem", "body image" and how often they performed physical activity. Results showed that there were significant differences between the sexes. Boys tended to have a more positive self-esteem and body image and exercise more often. Results showed a positive correlation between self-esteem and body image with boys. The results with girls showed a significant correlation between self-esteem and body image and a negative relationship between body image and BMI
