Generational Status and Personality Factors as Predictors of Stress in Students.
Padilla, Amado M.; And Others
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v8 n3 p275-88 Sep 1986
Questionnaires and personality scales were used to study the effect of generational status on stress and personality measures among 247 immigrants. The late immigrant group--immigration after age 14--experienced highest stress, lowest self-esteem, and most external locus of control. A wide discrepancy existed between late and early immigrants on nearly every measure. (JHZ)
