The relationship of Personality Traits and Academic and Social Self-Efficacies of Learning Disabilities (LD) Learners
This paper examined the relationship between Big Five personality traits (OCEAN) and academic and social self-efficacies of learning disabilities (LD) learners. A total of 89 LD learners aged 10 to 19 years old completed questionnaires measuring Big-Five personality traits (International Personality Item Pool, IPIP), academic self-efficacy (Academic Efficacy scale from the Manual for the Patterns of Adaptive Learning Scales, MPAL), and social self-efficacy (Social Competence Rating Scale for Children, SCRSC). Pearson correlation shows that personality traits that have a significant relationship with academic and social self-efficacies were openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, and agreeableness while neuroticism does not have a significant relationship with both academic and social self-efficacies. Implications for future intervention are also being discussed.
