Background

Few studies are available about the personality profile of higher education students with dyslexia and to which extent this could be any different from their non-dyslexic peers.

Aims and Samples

To obtain empirical evidence, we compared the personality profile of a group of 100 Dutch-speaking students with dyslexia with that of a control group of 100 students without learning disabilities.

Methods

The NEO-PI-R based on the Big Five in personality research was used.

Results and Conclusions

Our study showed no differences in the personality between both groups. This agrees with a recent meta-analysis of English findings Swanson and Hsieh, 2009, suggesting that students with dyslexia do not perceive themselves differently than their non-dyslexic peers. Practical implications and directions for future research are considered.
