Yeah, self-esteem has minute role to play in ones academic performance than what his/her self-confidence does. I have seen academically brilliant people who were victims of child abuse. The minute role that self-esteem plays is that if it is too low then it hinders the persons decision to participate in an academic exercise. Of course, there is a tug-of-war between both confidence and esteem.
Now, we have to investigate Unsupervised and Supervised Learners efficacy/esteem/confidence values on their academic performances. The boundary for a Supervised learner can be defined whereas the Unsupervised learners boundary has a long range like the child could be in an environment where nobody reads/writes but goes to school and there can be a child who is not going to school, nor has parents to take care. Why Im bringing this point to your notice is that most of the time we ignore the unsupervised learners in our experiments and that they are also learning something or the other which boosts their confidence and I dont know how the esteem.
