Abstract

This article focuses on investigating and substantiating the potential relationship between students’ perceptions of their complex thinking abilities and their self-esteem at a technological university in Western Mexico. Employing a multivariate descriptive statistical analysis, the study not only aims to demonstrate the linkage between these two perceptions but also explores the potential influence of the gender variable on this relationship. The findings indicate a statistically significant correlation between the perception of competency in complex thinking, particularly in the sub-competence of critical thinking, and the students’ self-esteem. Despite the small sample size, which could be considered a constraint of the study, the results are presented as significant for decision-making in the educational sphere, professional training, and emotional well-being of youth, highlighting their importance and applicability.
