Abstract or Summary
  • This study explored the relationship between ethnic and ego identities taking into consideration age at arrival in the U.S., gender of adolescent, family functioning, and parental performance of ethnic behaviors/activities. In addition, this study described the general nature of ethnic and ego identity development among Korean- American adolescents. One hundred and twenty-two Korean-American adolescents completed the Multigroup Ethnic Identity Measure, Extended Objective Measure of Ego Identity Status, Family Assessment Measure III, Parental Performance of Ethnic Activities and Behaviors Questionnaire, and a Demographic Questionnaire. Results revealed that the overall relationship between ethnic and ego identity seemed to be positive, particularly in the ideological ego identity domain, and less in the interpersonal ego identity domain. In addition, this relationship appeared to be particularly evident when considering adolescents' ethnic identity achievement scores. This relationship, however, was complex and multidimensional. It appeared to be partially influenced by Korean- American adolescents' arrival time in the U.S., gender, and family functioning. Results also indicated that family functioning and parental performance of ethnic behaviors and activities had a significant impact on adolescents' ethnic identity, independent of ego identity. Limitations and suggestions for future research were discussed. Implications for those who work with Korean-American adolescents in relation to their ethnic and ego identities were also presented.
