OPEN AND CLOSED MINDEDNESS AND PERCEPTIONS OF LEADER BEHAVIOR.
CROFT, JOHN C.
THIS STUDY PROPOSED TO DETERMINE, IN A SCHOOL SETTING, IF PERCEPTION ACCURACY WAS RELATED TO PERSONALITY STRUCTURE. TWO SECONDARY AND ELEMENTARY PRINCIPALS WERE SELECTED FROM EACH OF 12 SCHOOL DISTRICTS. THE LEADER BEHAVIOR DESCRIPTION QUESTIONNAIRE (LBDQ) AND THE ROKEACH DOGMATISM SCALE (RDS) WERE ADMINISTERED TO THE SUPERINTENDENTS, PRINCIPALS, AND TEACHERS OF THE 24 SCHOOLS IN THE SAMPLE. FROM THE TEST RESULTS THE PRINCIPALS WERE RANKED ACCORDING TO OPEN-MINDEDNESS AND CLOSED-MINDEDNESS. SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS WERE FOUND BETWEEN THE SELF-PERCEPTIONS OF THE PRINCIPALS AND PERCEPTIONS BY THEIR SUPERINTENDENTS, AND BETWEEN STAFF PERCEPTIONS AND SUPERINTENDENT PERCEPTIONS. THE FINDINGS OF THE STUDY WERE FELT TO NEED FURTHER INVESTIGATION. RELATED MATERIAL MAY BE FOUND IN ED 010 216. (RS)
