Some Differential Effects of Two Training Group Styles.
Boller, Jon D.
Concurrent with the increasing interest in the training group (T-Group) as a source of growth and personal awareness for its participants, is a need to examine the effects of the T-group on certain personality types. This paper presents a rationale for examining the effects of the T-group on introverts and extroverts. Two T-group styles were examined, a sensory awareness group and a verbal cognitive group. Results indicate that the sensory awareness group is more profitable to both personality types, and that there is a direct relationship between personality type and profit in a T-group. While profit was less for the introvert, there was reason to believe that an extended group experience might have been more profitable. Profit was measured by quantifying emotional reactions to the on-going group process at timed sampling intervals via Homan's Social Exchange model. Poker chips were used as symbolic representations of positive and negative effect. (Author)
