Section 2 analyzes pedagogical roles and behaviors from a normative dimension perspective. Section 3 shifts to the personal dimension in discussing styles, values, and vocational preferences. Section 4 deals with the study's four problem areas, and section 5 summarizes results in terms of principals' subject areas, cognitive styles, teaching method preferences, leadership concepts, and attitudes toward criticism. A final section discusses those results. A four-page bibliography is appended. (KS)
