Other Abstract

The purpose of the part one of the article was to review the advances on assessments of body image construct which are available to measure various facets of body image functioning in specific contexts. The review elaborates upon different definitions of constructs of body image from perceptual and attitudinal components and classifies the different methods that are used to assess body image. The perceptual techniques are mainly used for body size estimation, and the attitudinal techniques include explicit and implicit measurements. Additionally, the development of personalized Implicit Associative Test is reviewed. Figural stimuli scales and digital and computerized techniques of assessing body image perception and body dissatisfaction are introduced to Chinese scholars. Some methodological concern should not be ignored in this field such as avoidance of misusing measurements and utilization of appropriate measures in specific groups.

The part two was to explore whether implicit body image and explicit body image are differentially susceptible to influence, both were measured after exposure to images of beauty or androgyny in magazine advertisements or to control advertisements containing no body images. As predicted, female participants' implicit body. images were affected by idealized images of Beauty or androgyny. These findings support the hypothesis that women may not as easily correct for, or protect against, inappropriate social comparisons and other threats to the self on the implicit level, at least in the domain of attractiveness. And implicit body image and explicit body image are different constructs. Moreover, this study suggested priming is a susceptible for assess implicit body image.

In part three, the aim of the study was at exploring characteristics of children' body image and the associations between body image and eating behavior, physical activity throng' questionnaires. The findings indicated that food were more attractive to the children with high level of body dissatisfaction than the ones with body satisfaction.
