ABSTRACT: Adolescentsُ egocentrism is a controversial concept in cognitive developmental theories and there are little studies that investigated its antecedents. The present study examined a causal model of the relationships between dimensions of family communication, separation-individuation and imaginary audience in adolescence period. Participants were 356, boys and girls, high school and college students of Shiraz city. Participants completed the New Imaginary Audience Scale (NIAS), Pathology of separation-individuation scale (PATHSEP) and The Revised Family Communication Patterns instrument (RFCP). Results showed that conversation was a negative and conformity was a positive predictor of the imaginary audience (IA). When the dimensions of family communication patterns and PATHSEP- as predictors of the imaginary audience- were tested together, results clearly revealed the mediation role of PATHSEP between FCP and IA. This explanatory model is elaborated in the article.
