Self-esteem can have an effect on social anxiety, shyness and social withdrawal and more. In this study self-esteem and other factors were measured in two groups of young people (N = 98), with the mean age of 22.8 years. The groups were an experimental group that was taking part in Dale Carnegie training and a control group that had never taken part in such training. The experimental group was measured at three different time points; before Dale Carnegie training, in the last class of training and three months after the training, but the control group was measured at one time point. Within the experimental group, there was a significant difference between self-esteem, social anxiety and shyness and social withdrawal at the three different time points. That indicates that Dale Carnegie training does increase self-esteem significantly and it maintains higher three months after the training has taken place.
