An Exploratory Investigation of Characteristics of Compulsive Talkers.
Bostrom, Robert N.; Harrington, Nancy Grant
Communication Education, v48 n1 p73-80 Jan 1999
Compares 28 undergraduates identified as talking too much to 224 "normals" on a series of variables associated with compulsive talking. Finds that talkers differed from "normals" in their self-reports of verbal activity; and they reported being more argumentative and less apprehensive, and had more positive attitudes about communication. Finds no differences in self esteem or locus of control between these groups. (SR)
