Summary or Abstract : The current study investigated the relationship between independent reading behavior and the constructs of personality described by the Five Factor Model (i.e., Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Neuroticism, Openness). Sixty-two 5 th grade students completed assessments of personality, reading ability, vocabulary, basic intellectual skills, and exposure to print. In order to obtain information about self-initiated reading behavior, students were also asked to keep track of their after school activities for a period of two weeks using activity diaries. Information regarding socio-economic status was also collected. Results of this study confirmed the findings of previous research and indicated a significant relationship between reading volume and reading ability, vocabulary, and general intelligence. In addition, while there was a significant relationship between socio-economic variables and general exposure to print, there was no relationship between socio-economic variables and self-initiated reading behavior, or reading for pleasure. Finally, in a multiple regression analysis controlling for reading ability and all background variables, Introversion (i.e., Low Extraversion) explained an additional 9 of the variance in reading for pleasure, indicating that this aspect of personality provides a unique and independent contribution to self-initiated reading behavior. Thus, the study supported the importance of personality as a construct contributing to self-initiated reading behavior and suggested that children who are more gregarious, active, talkative, and energetic tend to engage in less reading for pleasure. By contrast, the avid, independent reader tends to be the more introverted child who derives stimulation from within and requires fewer interactions with others..
