Woodward, John C.; Kalyan-Masih, Violet
Adolescence, v25 n100 p977-88 Win 1990
Investigated loneliness, coping, and cognitive styles of 52 gifted rural adolescents. Found that field independent (FI) adolescents were more lonely in a crowd, whereas field dependent (FD) adolescents were more lonely when not with others. FI adolescents showed more autonomy and self-reliance, while FD adolescents relied more on external sources of support when coping with loneliness. (Author/NB)
