Klein, Helen Altman
Adolescence, v27 n107 p689-94 Fall 1992
Investigated relationship between temperament and self-esteem (or social competence). Administered Dimensions of Temperament Scale and Short Form of Texas Social Behavior Inventory to 186 college students. Found that Adaptability, Attention/Distractibility, and Reactivity all showed significant correlations with self-esteem. Suggests that temperament may mediate how each individual perceives and experiences social demands and constraints. (Author/NB)
