Some differential ability patterns in children and their relationship to environmental and personality dimensions
Barton, K. (1976). Some Differential Ability Patterns in Children and Their Relationship to Environmental and Personality Dimensions. Multivariate Experimental Clinical Research, 2(4), 195-212.
First, evidence is presented to show that children with discrepant ability patterns tend to differ consistently on several personality dimensions and in their environmental experiences. Second, a theoretical model, linking ability patterns to personality and environmental variables is suggested based on the empirical evidence. Finally, ways of testing this model are discussed and some possible implications detailed.
