PERSONALITY FACTORS WHICH MAY INTERFERE WITH THE LEARNING OF ADULT BASIC EDUCATION STUDENTS.
HAND, S.E.; PUDER, WILLIAM H.
TO UNDERSTAND BETTER THE LEARNING CHARACTERISTICS OF CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED ADULTS AND TO STUDY THE EMOTIONAL FACTORS COMMONLY OBSERVED AMONG THIS POPULATION WHICH APPEAR TO INHIBIT PARTICIPATION IN ORGANIZED EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES AND LEARNING, THE LITERATURE IN SEVERAL AREAS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCH WAS SURVEYED. IN THIS PAPER THE RESEARCHERS (1) EXAMINE THE CONCEPT OF SELF AS IT PERTAINS TO THE ADULT BASIC EDUCATION STUDENT, (2) REVIEW ROKEACH'S HYPOTHESIS OF THE CLOSED BELIEF-DISBELIEF SYSTEM IN AN EFFORT TO RELATE IT TO THE EMOTIONAL MAKE-UP OF ADULT BASIC EDUCATION STUDENTS, (3) DESCRIBE THE "CLOSED" SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT WHICH GIVES RISE TO THE PHENOMENON OF THE "CLOSED" MIND, AND (4) IDENTIFY SOME OF THE PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ADULT BASIC EDUCATION STUDENT WHICH INTERFERE WITH HIS POTENTIAL AS A LEARNER. IN ADDITION TO OVERCOMING SUCH PERSONALITY FACTORS AS ALIENATION, AVOIDANCE, HOSTILITY TOWARD AUTHORITY, WITHDRAWAL, VIOLENT AGGRESSION, FEAR OF SCHOOLS, SELF-IMAGE AS AN ILLITERATE, REJECTION OF THE DESIRE TO DEVELOP INTELLECTUALLY, MENTAL BLOCKS AGAINST THE WORLD, AND RIGID VALUE SYSTEMS, THE ILLITERATE MUST BREAK OUT OF A SLOUGH OF DEFEAT AND DESPAIR IF HE IS TO ACHIEVE.
