An Investigation of High School Students' Perceptions of Talkativeness, Apprehension, and Willingness To Talk Variables.
McDowell, Earl E.; McDowell, Carlene E.
This study is designed to determine if there are significant differences among "talkaholic" groups in rating reticence variables, in rating Personal Report of Communication Apprehension (PRCA) variables, and in rating Willingness to Talk in Class variables, as well as to determine if there are significant differences among Willingness to Talk in Class groups in rating reticence variables and PRCA variables. Results indicate that the high talkaholic group rated all reticence variables and all PRCA variables significantly lower than the low talkaholic group, as well as rating several Willingness to Talk Variables significantly higher than the low talkaholic group. The Willingness to Talk groups and the correlational analyses are reported and discussed in the paper. (Contains 17 references and 9 tables of data.) (Author/RS)
