The Relationships between Pupil Control Ideology, Self-Concept and Teacher Personality: Dimensions of Teacher Effectiveness.
Harris, Karen R.; And Others
A study examined the personality characteristics and self-concepts of 110 teachers-in-training to see how these variables related to the subjects' humanistic versus authoritarian orientations toward pupil control. It was found that the humanistically oriented educators tended to be emotionally stable, realistic, expedient, happy-go-lucky, imaginative, venturesome, outgoing, relaxed, inner-directed, self-assured, and high in self-concept. The authoritarian educators were more affected by feelings, conscientious, sober, practical, shy, reserved, tense, frustrated, apprehensive, and unlikely to compromise, as well as low in self-concept.
