Abstract

Bullying is a widespread and serious issue for students in the United States. Many students who are bullied do not report it to a teacher or other staff member. This correlational research study investigated four questions: (a) Is there a relationship between the first choice of a staff member to whom a student would report bullying incidents and that staff member's personality characteristics, as assessed by the MyersBriggs Type Indicator, (b) Is there a relationship between the certificated staff member identified least frequently to whom a student would report bullying incidents and that staff member's personality characteristics, as assessed by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, (c) Is there a relationship betwee n a student’s first choice of a staff member to whom a student would report bullying incidents and that staff member ’ s formal training in addressing bullying, and (d) Is there a relationship between a student’s choice of administrator and/or pupil personnel staff and that administrator and/or pupil personnel staff member’s personality characteristics, as assessed by the Myers -Briggs Type Indicator?
