Some Personality Factors Relating to Reading.
Spencer, Gary D.
This study focuses on some common personality patterns and their influence on reading. Two commonly observed personality types, the compulsive and the hysterical, found at opposite ends of the continuum of personality patterns are discussed, and the types of children which result from parents with these personalities are described. It is noted that the classroom teacher is usually found near the compulsive end of the continuum. The relationship to reading instruction of children with personalities described as independent-compulsive, dependent-compulsive, dependent-hysterical, and independent-hysterical is discussed. References are included. (NH)
