Children’s Storytelling in Virtual Worlds: A Critique
Our results provide evidence for a higher-order structure of personality in middle childhood that maps on to recent findings in adult populations supporting hierarchical relationships among 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-factor models of personality.
In addition, primary higher-order personality traits rated by parents at age 11 showed substantial predictive validity for analogous traits rated by self at age We discuss our results within the context of developing a convergent hierarchical taxonomy of personality in middle childhood and the importance of multiinformant investigations. Over the last several decades, a more thorough understanding and better agreement on the fundamental structure of individual differences in personality has emerged.
Researchers have converged on the broad outlines of a coherent structural model for classification of personality traits, an effort that has, in turn, facilitated interpretation of results across studies employing different structural models. These developments have primarily focused on personality traits measured in adulthood. Efforts toward a better understanding of childhood personality have been growing only in recent years, due in large part to a number of researchers who have devoted their attention to this particular age group e.
While researchers investigating personality structure and classification have often relied on adult samples, another group of individual differences researchers have emphasized the study of temperament characteristics in infancy and toddlerhood. Temperamental traits are often defined as individual differences that are largely biologically-based and present from birth e.
Despite a large and growing body of work investigating models of temperamental characteristics and a common hypothesis that later personality traits develop out of early temperamental traits, a comprehensive empirical understanding of how temperament and personality are related has not been established.
A key issue in this lesser-studied developmental period in personality psychology is the importance of age-specific models. Thus, in order to thoroughly understand, classify, and measure childhood personality, including an understanding of how it is related to personality in adulthood, we must pursue focused explorations targeting the population of interest De Fruyt et al.
Specifically, we focus on unpacking the hierarchical structure of personality in this age group, building on recent work in adulthood. While various structural models of adult personality have been utilized in the literature, the field has largely been moving toward agreement on a five-factor model FFM; e. Many early attempts at measuring personality in childhood used a five-factor approach, and recent empirically-based approaches to scale construction in children have shown a similar five-factor structure.
However, structural models in the temperament literature often utilize a 3- or 4-factor framework Else-Quest et al. Thus, an important remaining question is whether various higher-order factor structures of personality traits in children may be hierarchically related to one another in a similar manner to that established for adults.
Both empirical and integrated theoretical investigations have supported the existence of five broad trait domains in childhood corresponding to Neuroticism, Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, and Openness to Experience e. There has been some debate over whether Openness to Experience has a direct analog in childhood Goldberg, ; Halverson et al. Longitudinal studies investigating connections of childhood personality traits to adult personality traits can provide an important step in linking these primarily age-specific literatures.
Work investigating longitudinal connection of personality types Caspi et al. However, as measurement of childhood personality improves, potential stability of personality across development should be better understood.
Thus, investigators must continue examining cross-time relationships of early personality and rely on methodologically-rigorous designs, such as those utilizing multiple informants and multiple measures as we do in the present study. The present study had the primary goal of contributing to our current understanding of the higher-order structure of personality traits in middle childhood. First, exploratory analyses at the higher-order trait level were conducted to determine whether different factorial models of higher-order trait structure would be related in a hierarchical manner, similar to the established evidence in adult populations.
Second, we sought to establish evidence for predictive validity of these higher-order traits by relating parent-rated higher-order personality traits at age 11 to self-rated higher-order personality traits at age MTFS utilizes an overlapping cohort design, with one cohort of twins and their families recruited when the twins were approximately 11 years old and the other cohort recruited when the twins were approximately 17 years old. The present study included twins and their caregivers from the younger cohort.
The resulting sample used for the longitudinal analyses thus consisted of individuals, with data at age 11 only, with data at 17 only, and with data from both assessments. Each item listed a personality characteristic, followed by a description of high scorers and low scorers on that attribute. For example:. High scorers are natural leaders, they tend to take charge, make decisions, give directions, and other people defer to them.
Low scorers prefer to let someone else run things and would rather be a soldier than a general. The instructions requested the parents to keep only one twin in mind while making the ratings. The MPQ is an empirically-derived measure of personality which was developed through an iterative approach to measuring the range of basic personality constructs in adults. Specifically, an iterative procedure was implemented by extracting the first principal component from the MPR items and saving the regression-based factor scores, extracting and rotating using varimax rotation two principal components and saving the factor scores, extracting and rotating three principal components and saving factor scores, and so on.
While the focus on the present study was at the higher-order level, this process was extended to extract a lower-level structure as well. These additional analyses are available from the first author on request. Correlations were then estimated for the saved factor scores.
While correlations between regression-based factor scores produced with varimax rotation will necessarily be uncorrelated within levels, we were interested in the relationships of the scores between levels of the personality hierarchy. That is, we wanted to understand how lower levels of the hierarchy emerged from higher levels. The factor score correlations were used to construct a hierarchical structure of personality by placing the first principal component at the top of the structure and using the correlations as path estimates between this component and the two principal components at the next level, and so on at successive levels.
Ordinary least squares regression analyses were conducted for each of the 3 higher-order scales at age 17, with the 3 higher-order scales at age 11 that map on to those measured by the MPQ at age 17 entered simultaneously as predictors. The lower order structure that emerged at age 11 paralleled the eleven factor structure of the MPQ details of analyses available on request.
Results at the higher levels of the hierarchy provide support for some congruence with 3-, 4- and 5-factor models of personality established in adult populations. At the four-principal components level, a fourth trait breaks off that largely resembles an Agreeableness-like dimension e. Parent-rated items loading highest on components representing the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5 th levels of the hieararchy.
All of the higher-order scales at age 17 were significantly predicted by the scale of similar content at age 11, above and beyond other higher-order scales at age 11 See Table 1 for regression coefficients. Only one additional prediction resulted, such that NEM at age 17 was secondarily predicted by low levels on CON at age These results suggest that parental ratings of childhood higher-order personality traits at age 11 hold specific predictive variance for self-reports of the same traits at age Furthermore, examination of the multiple correlations show that parental reports of childhood personality held the most relevant information for predicting later levels of CON, followed by PEM, with self-reports of NEM at 17 showing the lowest amounts of variance accounted for by earlier parental reports.
The overall pattern is similar to the results from the regression analyses although relationships were somewhat less specific. Multiple correlations and beta weights are from ordinary least squares regressions predicting the higher-order traits at 17 from the higher-order traits at Higher-order traits at age 11 were entered simultaneously as predictors.
Pearson correlations as indices of association between higher-order personality traits at age 11 and age These results provide preliminary support for a hierarchical structure of higher-order personality traits in middle childhood that joins 3-, 4-, and 5-factor accounts of trait structure within a comprehensive framework. The higher-order hierarchical structure is largely consistent with recent results found using adult samples, such that evidence for each prominent model can be found at different levels of personality space.
In addition, these results provide evidence that parent ratings of these higher-order traits in middle childhood show specific and meaningful connections with self-rated higher-order personality traits at age This study represents an important contribution to the ongoing development of a hierarchical taxonomy of personality in middle childhood.
The results replicate recent findings in a review of adult personality research, such that evidence was found for a 3-, 4-, and 5-factor model at higher levels of the hierarchy. At level five, the fifth factor emerges as Absorption. In addition, the 2-factor structure is roughly consistent with the emergence of positive and negative 2-factor structures established in adult populations e.
Such evidence contributes to continuity across researchers and improved communication and interpretation of results across studies. One interesting result at the higher-order level represents a subtle deviation from studies with adults.
In future work, it will be important to determine whether this is an artifact of the reporter and how other aspects of the agreeableness domain might be measured in middle childhood. In addition, this study provided evidence of longitudinal prediction of higher-order personality traits across reporter and across the period of adolescent development.
Higher-order childhood personality traits as rated by parents at age 11 significantly predicted the analogous self-rated higher-order traits at age These findings are particularly meaningful given the cross-informant, cross-adolescence, and cross-measure nature of the ratings including the changes in personality that occur over this period of time; e. The results of the present study also have implications for reliance on parental reports of childhood personality, such that parental reports may hold more meaningful information for some traits than others.
While longitudinal studies can provide crucial evidence in establishing which personality traits should be included in a taxonomy of childhood personality and how such traits are related to one another, they are necessarily limited by the measurements available at the time the study began. Given that the field has still not yet developed a widely-accepted, well-validated measure of childhood personality, early measures were breaking new ground. Thus, the primary limitation of the present study is reliance on a measure of childhood personality that is limited in its ability to measure the constructs of interest with maximum validity and reliability.
Future research should utilize broader measures of traits of interest and also include lower-order traits that may be relevant for children but are not well-captured in adult personality measures e. From a developmental perspective, such research also has clinical implications— e.
The ability to make such predictions may contribute to the development of prevention and intervention programs aimed at reducing the probability of these negative outcomes Shiner, Similarly useful information could result from identifying those personality characteristics that make children more resilient to negative outcomes and more likely to have positive outcomes.
A better understanding of these characteristics could be used to foster and encourage the development of such traits earlier in life. Future studies should also make attempts to include personality ratings from multiple informants, including the child, and when possible use multiple methods e.

Research on situations has been reinvigorated within social and personality psychology. This chapter argues that a developmental perspective on situations can further enrich understanding of person-situation transactions and generate interesting predictions for future empirical tests. The chapter describes an overarching perspective and reviews principles of personality development before turning to an explicit consideration of how situational characteristics the Situational Eight DIAMONDS; Rauthmann et al. It concludes by describing different kinds of person-situation transactions that promote consistency and change in psychological characteristics across the lifespan and suggests a few future directions for research.

While the importance of the role of storytelling can hardly be overestimated, the impact of digitalization on this role is more ambivalent. In this second book-length publication of the programme Media and Education in the Digital Age — MEDA, the authors take a critical stance towards the alleged emancipative affordances of digital storytelling in education. The collection is inspired by the effort of making professional educators aware of the risks of the digital turn in educational storytelling but also of the opportunities and the conditions for critical engagements. Based on their research and field experience, fifteen scholars discuss in nine chapters these risks and opportunities, providing ideas, evidence, references and inspiration to educators and researchers. Download PDF Abstract In this chapter, we offer a critique of the growing use of virtual worlds for children, particularly as tools to teach children the basic elements of storytelling: language, narrative, the creative imagination, and generativity in applying learned skills.

The main aim of the study was to investigate the link between child and adolescent adaptive behavior and adult psychological functioning, and the role of career orientation in this linkage. This was based on a Finnish longitudinal study, where data at ages 8, 14, and 42 were available for females and males. Adaptive behavior, indicated by three aspects of high self-control of emotions: constructiveness, compliance, and trustworthiness, was assessed at ages 8 and Psychological functioning at age 42 was indicated by psychological well-being, self-esteem, social coherence, and trust in life.

Коммандер спускался по лестнице, ни на мгновение не сводя с него глаз. Он быстро подошел к ним и остановился в нескольких сантиметрах от дрожащего Чатрукьяна. - Вы что-то сказали. - Сэр, - задыхаясь проговорил Чатрукьян.
