Abstract:

An examination of Type A behavior in children as measured by the MYTH and hyperactivity scores in children as measured by the Conners TRC revealed a significant relationship between the two scales. Subjects were drawn from a total sample of 199 first, second and third grade children obtained through classroom-distributed questionnaires. Significant differences on MYTH scores between children of Type A and Type B mothers, and between males and females were eliminated when variance attributed to hyperactivity was covaried out of the analyses. Results are discussed in terms of potential overlap between hyperactivity and Type A constructs as they are often measured.
