There were clear differences between children, adolescents and young adults which can be linked to age, gender and experience.

Girls experiencing co-ed government schooling had lower self-concepts than girls in single sex catholic schooling. results:  results Girls hospitalised with eating disorders had lower physical self-concepts than other adolescents in relation to how they felt about themselves, however had high self-concepts in the usefulness of body image, physical activity and appearance. Young adults’ physical self-concepts differed with experience but less so with age or gender. Young adults (PDHPE) had much higher physical self-concepts than young adults (non-PDHPE).
