CROSS-CULTURAL COMPARISON OF PERSONALITY: GREEK CHILDREN AND ENGLISH CHILDREN
Abstract:The Junior Eysenck Personality Questionnaire was completed by 1117 boys and 1199 girls in Greece. Factor comparisons indicated that the dimensions of Psychoticism, Extraversion, Neuroticism and Social Desirability were identical in Greece and in England. Some item changes were required for the scoring key but reliabilities of all factors were satisfactory except Psychoticism which was somewhat weak. Greek norms indicated that boys scored higher than girls on Psychoticism and Extraversion but lower on Neuroticism. Direct cross-cultural comparisons revealed that Greek children scored lower on Psychoticism and Neuroticism than English children, but considerably higher on Social Desirability.
