Abstract: The present study was conducted to examine the global-specific dimension of self-esteem. Specifically, to explore the possibility of a fusion between the global self-esteem with God-centered self-esteem, a form of specific self-esteem. This fusion would occur in tandem with a fusion of the personal and religious-social identities known as identity fusion. Simultaneously, individuals who are poorly fused would likely exhibit low levels of global and God-centered self-esteem. Results showed that identity fusion served as a quadratic moderator on the relationship between global self-esteem and God-centered self-esteem. Individuals who were highly fused displayed a strong correlation between their global and God-centered self-esteem, supporting the notion of fusion between the two facets of self-esteem. Further support for the fusion of self-esteems was found from a partial convergence of their nomological networks. The findings of this study provide preliminary support for the fusion between the global and God-centered self-esteems.
