Compatibility of Housemates with Mental Retardation.
Wiltz, James; Reiss, Steven
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v108 n3 p173-80 May 2003
This study evaluated Reiss's (2000) empirically derived system for understanding incompatibility of housemates in housing programs for people with mental retardation. Comparison of 57 dyads without significant conflict and 36 dyads with conflict found dissimilarity of basic motives and values was associated with housemate incompatibility as were motivation for vengeance and acceptance and low tolerance for anxiety, pain, and frustration.
