Inquiry Mode, Occupational Stress, and Preferred Leadership Style among American Elementary School Teachers.
Kagan, Dona M.
Journal of Social Psychology, v129 n3 p297-305 Jun 1989
Explores the relationship among teachers' cognitive styles, their preference of leadership styles, and their susceptibility to stress. Data from the self-reports of elementary teachers suggest that nonanalytic teachers prefer principals who stress process rather than task and appear less susceptible to occupational stress than the more analytic and realistic teachers.
