Do Dispositional Characteristics Influence Reading? Examining the Impact of Personality on Reading Fluency
Krach, S. Kathleen; McCreery, Michael P.; Loe, Scott A.; Jones, W. Paul
Reading Psychology, v37 n3 p470-486 2016
Previous research demonstrates specific relationships between personality traits and general academic performance. In addition, research studies have demonstrated relationships among personality and variables related to reading fluency (i.e. speed, accuracy, automaticity, and prosody). However, little investigation has examined specific links between personality and reading fluency. The researchers hypothesized that there is a direct relationship between personality and reading fluency when accounting for cognitive ability. Findings indicate that the personality trait of openness is a positive predictor of reading fluency ability even when accounting for variance associated with cognitive ability.
