Perspectives on Peace.
Bents, Richard; Trygestad, JoAnn
Students assessed as having different personality types were queried concerning their perspectives on peace. Two hundred seventy-five students (ages 14-18) from Poland, West Germany, and the United States defined peace and indicated the degree of influence they felt they have on the future. Differences in definitions of peace, optimism, and degree of influence on the future were found among the various personality types as designated by the Myers-Briggs Type indicator. The survey instrument (Peace Issues: Attitudes and Values Questionnaire) was a Likert-scale of 45 items designed to identify definitions of peace, student attitudes toward peace, and the degree of influence the student feels he/she has on the future. Items include: "I think our country should spend more money for bombs and other weapons"; "Peace will occur within my lifetime"; "Peace is getting along with others"; and "I know how to work toward peace."
