It was hypothesized that BYU students would report a comparatively high self esteem when exposed to LDS doctrine and a lower self esteem when exposed to LDS culture. A self report survey on self esteem was administered to three groups of subjects. One group viewed a stimulus representing LDS doctrine, one viewed a stimulus representing LDS culture, and the control group viewed no stimulus. The hypothesis was supported by the results.
