CROSS-CULTURAL STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SOCIAL DESIRABILITY VARIABLE AND PERSONALITY VARIABLES.
GHEI, S.N.
AN EFFORT WAS MADE TO MEASURE THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE OBSERVED DIFFERENCES IN THE PERSONALITY STRUCTURE OF AMERICAN COLLEGE STUDENTS AND COLLEGE STUDENTS IN INDIA MIGHT HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY CROSS-CULTURAL DIFFERENCES IN A SOCIAL DESIRABILITY SET DERIVED FROM THE EDWARDS PERSONAL PREFERENCE SCHEDULE (EPPS). EIGHT HYPOTHESES WERE TESTED ON 243 AMERICAN LIBERAL ARTS UNDERGRADUATE FEMALES AND 258 FROM TWO LINGUISTIC REGIONS (HINDI AND BENGALI) OF INDIA. RESULTS SHOWED THAT SOCIAL DESIRABILITY SCALE VALUES OF PERSONALITY STATEMENTS WERE POSITIVELY AND SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED NOT ONLY ACROSS TWO DISTINCT LINGUISTIC REGIONS OF INDIA BUT ALSO ACROSS THE AMERICAN AND INDIAN CULTURES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT PERSONALITY TESTS IN WHICH VARIOUS RESPONSE SETS HAVE BEEN PURPOSELY CONTROLLED MAY PROVE TO BE USEFUL IN THE OBJECTIVE CROSS-CULTURAL STUDY OF PERSONALITY. (GD)
