Abstract: Although contemporary adolescents are commonly described as "egocentric" and "self-centered", there is a severe lack of validated Chinese measures of adolescent egocentrism. Based on a thorough literature review, the 14-item Chinese Adolescent Egocentrism Scale (CAES) was developed and administered to 1658 Chinese secondary school students. Factor analyses showed that two factors were intrinsic to the scale and the related subscales as well as the overall scale had high internal consistency. Consistent with expectations, CAES scores were significantly related to measures of morality, egocentrism, spirituality, and empathy. Analyses of the responses to the CAES items revealed that a significant proportion of respondents showed self-centered characteristics.
