Abstract

Family cohesion and the presence of parents play a critical role in the lives of children living in an environment that helps the healthy psychological development of children and the integration of their personalities. The present study aims to identify the personality traits of orphan children and to ascertain the impact of selected demographic variables on major personality traits. A random sample of 172 orphans responded to the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ). The results showed a statistically significant variance due to gender in neuroticism in favor of females, between lying and living in an institution, and between neuroticism and both parents and in lying the differences were in favor of the father. The city variable revealed differences in favor of extroversion in Jerusalem; neuroticism in Nablus and lying in Bethlehem.
