I just saw a newspaper article that may relate to the thread on how "only"
50% of women/girls (compared to a greater percentage of males) thought
they themselves were above average.

According to this article, high self-esteem may be related to aggression
-- particularly self-esteem not supported by actual accomplishments.  I'm
afraid I don't remember the reference for the study. 

Intruiging, huh?
