The Twenty Statements Test (Kuhn & McPartland, 1954) is a standardized measure of self-attitudes. Respondents are presented with a sheet of 20 numbered blanks and are asked to write 20 answers to the simple question, "Who am I?" Development of this measure was based on earlier research and pilot studies with school children and university students. The test was then given to 288 undergraduate students at the State University of Iowa, and responses were dealt with by a form of content analysis.
