Comparison of trait and state anxiety among differently abled persons
Author(s): Dr. Amalesh Adhikari
An attempt has been made to investigate the trait anxiety and state anxiety of the differently able persons and compare them in respects to the variables. Among differently abled persons, hearing impaired, visually impaired and orthopedically impaired (individuals having orthopedically defects in upper limbs) persons are taken under consideration. Forty subjects of each category namely hearing impaired, visually impaired and orthopedically impaired students were selected within the age range of twelve to eighteen years for the study. The trait anxiety and state anxiety were measured by Spielberger’s State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). The data were analyzed through the statistic of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The results indicate that the visually impaired persons were superior in state anxiety and trait anxiety than hearing impaired and orthopedically impaired persons. Again hearing impaired persons had higher score than orthopedically impaired persons in respect to state anxiety and trait anxiety.
