Student Personality Traits and Values across Generations.
Lavin, Thomas J.; Prull, Richard W.
Journal of College Student Development, v30 n5 p407-12 Sep 1989
Assessed possible generational differences in student personality traits and values by analyzing four samples of college freshmen (N=317) who had completed the Omnibus Personality Inventory at intervals spanning 1969 through 1987. Found a linear increase in impulsivity during that period was the strongest of the observed shifts. (Author/ABL)
