The purpose of this study was to examine three experi-
mental hypotheses: (1) each grade level in the study will
show greater physical distances in interpersonal spacing as
the grade level increases in both child-to-child and child-
to-adult relationships, (2) interpersonal spacing will be
greater in child-to-adult relationships than in child-to-
child relationships, and (3) there will be a correlation
between a child's self-esteem and his interpersonal spacing
in both child-to-child and child-to-adult relationships.
Two basic instruments were used in testing the hypoth-
eses: (1) Interpersonal Spacing Measurement Apparatus
and (2) modified Self-Esteem Inventory Short Form B.
The three hypotheses were accepted and significant at
better than the .01 level.
