Perceived popularity is one form of social status which is connected to prestige and power. Self- esteem is related to someone's evaluation of his or her value, and it influences the direction of behavior. Important antecedent of behaviour is self- efficacy, individual's evaluation of personal ability. People that consider themselves as more effective will probably choose to behave in some way and will be persistent despite obstacles. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between perceived popularity and self- esteem, academic, emotional and social self- efficacy. We used judgmental rating- scale for perceived popularity, Coopersmith Self- Esteem Inventory and Self- Efficacy Questionnaire for Children. The participants were 171 high-school students from second and third grade. Girls had higher results on the Academic Self- Efficacy Scale, while boys had higher results on Emotional Self- Efficacy Scale. Also, boys were perceived as more popular than girls. Self- Esteem was positively connected with Self- Efficacy domains. Academic Self- Efficacy was positively correlated to Emotional and Social Self- Efficacy. Emotional Self- Efficacy and perceived popularity were positively correlated to Social Self- Efficacy. Regression analysis showed that significant predictors of perceived popularity were gender, Academic and Social Self- Efficacy which explain 19.4% of variance.
