It refers to the perception, that individual have about their thoughts, feelings and actions in relation to others. Self-efficacy belief determines how people feel, think, motivate themselves and behave. Maddux (2002) has described self-efficacy as what I believe I can do with my skills under certain conditions. In the present study effort were made to explore the impact of self-efficacy on self-construal of the children. To achieve this, data were obtained on 100 students of which 50 were girls and 50 were boys. Out of 50, 25 were local (Bhopali) & 25 were kashmiri girls and boys. Standard tools assessing self-efficacy and self-construal were used in this study. Relationship between self-efficacy and self-construal were examined. Result indicated that self- efficacy was positively related with self-construal. Results are discussed in the light of importance of self-efficacy.
