Gender and Racial Differences in a Longitudinal Analysis of Self-Control and Cognitive Ability

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The paper uses the ECLS-k data to investigate the question of whether self-control is influenced by cognitive ability. Research outside of criminology has suggested a relationship between the two, which would stand in sharp contrast to Gottfredson and Hirschi’s parental management thesis. In contrary to the theorists' belief cognitive ability influences self-control outcomes suggesting etiologies other then parenting play a role in the development self-control. Results display support for a small to moderate effect of cognitive ability on self-control. Overall the current study supports the notion that Standardized Exams, a measure of cognitive ability can be predictive of self-control even after controlling for gender, and socioeconomic status. While within individual relationships are observed for all racial groups the paper also shows the generality of this statement maybe limited to only Caucasians when talking about between individual differences.
