dc.description.abstractThe main aim of the current study is to find out whether personality traits have any influence on self‐ esteem of dyslexic adolescents. Personality traits were first identified by the use of the ‘Personality Questionnaire for Children and adolescents’ (Besevegis & Paulopoulos, 1998) while self‐esteem was measured by the ‘Culture‐free Self‐esteem Inventory’ (Battle, 1992). The participants consisted of 86 adolescents ‐boys and girls‐ aged 11 to 14 years old diagnosed with dyslexia. The results of the study indicated that two of the personality factors: conscientiousness (organization and achievement) and intelligence (receptivity to new experiences and self‐confidence) play a significant role in their self‐ esteem. As far as the other factors were concerned the results of the study showed that they didn’t play a significant role in self‐esteem. On a descriptive level it is clear that participants of high sociability and low withdrawal tend to have high self‐esteem.
