ABSTRACT

The current study explored admiration, which captures how much peers respect and want to be like particular youth, as a peer social status indicator. This study examined the nature and behavioral correlates of three types of social status (popularity, preference, and admiration) and the longitudinal associations between the three types of social status and adjustment behavioral profiles. Participants(N = 677-736, 5th and 6th graders) nominated peers for the three types of social status and a wide range of academic and social adjustment behaviors at Waves 1 and 2. Partial correlation analysis indicated that admiration was either weakly associated or not associated with popularity and preference. Admiration and preference were more strongly associated with academic engagement and prosocial behavior, whereas popularity was more strongly associated with aggression and problem behavior. Path models and cross-lagged models indicated that engaging in aggressive-disruptive behavior led to increased popularity and decreased preference and admiration. In contrast, engaging in prosocial-engaged behavior led to increased admiration. In addition, popularity predicted increased aggressive-disruptive behavior, while preference and admiration predicted increased prosocial-engaged behavior. The strength of the association was much greater for admiration than likability, and admiration further predicted decreased aggressive-disruptive behavior.
