Investigating Personality Differences among Stuttering and Ordinary Individuals

The present study aimed to examine personality differences among individuals with stuttering and ordinary individuals. Results indicated that people suffering from stuttering experienced more personality issues compared to ordinary individuals. In terms of scales such as hypochondria, depression, hysteria, psychological social deviance, paranoia, psychasthenia, schizophrenia, and hypomania significant differences were found between ordinary individuals and those with stuttering problems. The findings demonstrated that in terms of gender, no significant difference was found between the personality components of people who stutter.
