Individual Differences in Personality and Views of Communication with Others. Case 25952.
Kaplan, Susan J.; Hirschberg, Nancy
If a person has an extreme score on a personality-trait measure, that trait should play a role in dictating which aspects of the environment are important to the individual. Subjects were asked to rate their dyadic communication with each of eight significant other people on a number of bipolar adjective scales. A multidimensional scaling analysis was performed to determine the underlying dimensional structure, as well as the importance of each dimension for each subject. The subjects' dimension weights were then correlated with various personality scores as measured by a number of standard tests. The results suggested that personality does have a small but significant influence on concepts of interpersonal communication. (Author/AA)
