Differences in Personality Type and Roommate Compatibility as Predictors of Roommate Conflict.
Fuller, Bret E.; Hall, F. Jay
Journal of College Student Development, v37 n5 p510-18 Sep-Oct 1996
Analysis of first-year roommate pairs found that versions of the Roommate Compatibility Questionnaire better predicted roommate conflict than did the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Discrepancies between perception of a roommate and descriptions of an ideal roommate predicted the most variance on a measure of roommate conflict. Discusses roommate-matching strategies. (RJM)
