The Interpersonal Needs of Guam College Students as Compared to Those Elsewhere.
Bruneau, Thomas; And Others
The interpersonal needs of inclusion, affection, and control were explored among a sample of 151 college students in Guam. The students were administered a scale to measure the strength of their interpersonal needs. The results revealed that the students' needs were average or low, most likely typifying a population that, living at home with the family's support, had no overpowering or unmet interpersonal needs. These results were then compared to similar data obtained from students in Australia, China, Hawaii, Japan, and Korea. The comparisons showed that these students also fell into the average or low ranges, suggesting that they are part of a strong relationship, probably with family, which meets their interpersonal needs. Overall, the data supported the conclusion that the students sampled were not lacking in need satisfaction. (FL)
