I think that characteristics of low self esteem are mostly the same in everyone, regardless of their gender. Almost all of the issues mentioned in this article are applicable to men. They are also applicable to different age groups.
I also think that most people with low self esteem do not experience most of these characteristics. Sometimes low self esteem comes and goes in phases based on many different factors.
For example, I have suffered from low self esteem most of my life. I had a difficult childhood and my self esteem issues began from a very young age. I used to have depression and anxiety. I had trouble socializing and spent most of my time at home. I did not participate in extra-curricular activities. I basically did not have a social life.
But when I was in college, things turned around for me. I had friends, I became social. I engaged in activities I enjoyed like dancing and exercise. I was also successful and had good grades. After college, life became difficult again and I again have low self esteem. But now I don't think of it as a permanent state. I've realized that a lot of it depends on environmental factors. There are certain triggers like stress, financial trouble, health disorders and psychological traumas such as a divorce, that trigger low self esteem.
