The Curiosity Dimension of Fifth-Grade Children: A Factorial Discriminant Analysis
Preview not available

Abstract

Some 416 fifth-grade boys and girls were classified as high- or low-curiosity types by peers and teachers. 26 different measures of cognitive abilities, personality characteristics, and social-interaction indices were utilized to develop discriminant functions among groups. Both sex and curiosity discriminations were statistically significant, while the interaction was not. The curiosity groups could be best distinguished by measures of social responsibility, intelligence, creativity, and tolerance for ambiguity.
