ABSTRACT
The article looks into the personality factors in the study of juvenile delinquency. One of the most severe handicaps to research in juvenile delinquency is the gross behavioral heterogeneity of individuals classified as delinquent. The behavioral difficulties of the overinhibited child depend primarily in his extreme introversion. Various difficulties in juvenile delinquency with different approaches can be overcome if data are restricted to behavior observations or products of some known relevance or delinquency, if the reliability of observations is known and adequate, and if appropriate analytic techniques are employed to define those structural categories that may be inherent in the data.
