Abstract

Samples of students with mixed heritage were compared to single-heritage students in Hawaii and New Mexico to determine whether bicultural socialization has positive or negative effects on personality, adjustment, and intergroup relations. No evidence of negative effects of bicultural socialization was found on the measures employed in this study. Positive effects were found for intergroup contact and attitudes, language facility, and enjoyment of the culture of minority groups. Mixed-heritage students appeared to have better relations with single-heritage groups than the single-heritage groups have with one another.
