Journal of Youth and Adolescence. VIII, 1979: Personality Characteristics of Black Youth: A Cross-Cultural Investigation. Enrico E. Jones. Pp. 149-159.

The view that black youth frequently manifest disordered personalities and negative self-concepts is examined through a comparison of the responses of black and white female adolescents from differing cultural and social class backgrounds to an Adjective Check List. While their responses were dissimilar from those of white female adolescents in many important respects, black subjects scored high on indices of personal adjustment and did not describe themselves in negatively valued terms. In fact, black girls from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, who are generally portrayed as particularly prone to pathology and negative self-evaluations, describe themselves in more favorable terms than black and white subjects from middle class backgrounds. Moreover, United States and Jamaican black subjects describe themselves in surprisingly similar fashion and differ in similar respects from their white American counterparts, thereby providing some evidence for the impact of a common cultural heritage on black personality cross-nationally.
