Individual Differences in Learning.
This document contains three symposium papers on individual differences in learning. "Creek Women's Perceptions of Work: A Qualitative Study" (Barbara Bussell Kawulich, Carol D. Hansen), which is an ethnographic study, discusses differences between the value systems held by Creek women and those of the mainstream population. "Subordinates' Information Seeking Behavior: Empirical Investigation of the Effect of Perceived Leadership Style and Individual Differences" (Svjetlana Madzar), which is based on a field study, shows general support for the hypothesis that the content and frequency of information seeking by subordinates from their superiors will depend on the individual superior's leadership style. "An Empirical Study of Age Discrimination in Teacher Selection with Application to HRD [Human Resource Development]" (Jeffry S. Bowman, Kiyoe Harada) reports on a study that found possible age discrimination when matched ages were used for hypothetical elementary teacher applicants and elementary principals to determine whether principals' evaluations of applicants were influenced by principal and applicant ages.
