CROSS-CULTURAL STUDY OF PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF YOUNG ADULTS.
GHEI, S.N.
A STUDY OF PERSONALITY TRAITS INCLUDED (1) A SURVEY OF THE CROSS-CULTURAL STUDIES OF PERSONALITY STUDIES FROM PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS AND (2) DETAILS OF A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF SUBJECTS FROM THE UNITED STATES AND INDIA. THE SURVEY OF CROSS-CULTURAL PERSONALITY RESEARCH INCLUDED ANALYSES OF RSULTS FROM (1) THE MULTIPHASIC PERSONALITY INVENTORY, (2) A PERSONALITY QUESTIONNAIRE, AND (3) THE EDWARDS PERSONAL PREFERENCE SCHEDULE. THE 235 SUBJECTS OF AN EMPIRICAL STUDY WERE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS FROM DELHI, INDIA, AND 218 UNIVERSITY STUDENTS FROM VERMONT. THE TWO GROUPS WERE ROUGHLY COMPARABLE IN SOCIAL AND CLASS STATUS. THE VARIABLES USED CONSISTED OF A SET OF 15 HOMOGENEOUS SCALES DERIVED FROM 225 ITEMS OF THE EDWARDS PERSONAL PREFERENCE SCHEDULE. FOUR SAMPLE GROUPS WERE DIVIDED RANDOMLY INTO TWO COMPARABLE HALVES. THE CONCLUSIONS INDICATED SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS OF SUBJECTS. HOWEVER, FACTOR STRUCTURE OF NEEDS IN BOTH SUBJECTS WAS NOTED TO BE SIMILAR. THE OBJECTIVE PERSONALITY TESTS, AND THE MULTIVARIATE TECHNIQUES INDICATED GREAT POTENTIAL FOR THE STUDY OF CROSS-CULTURAL PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS. (RS)
