ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to investigate if stereotypes of the typical Korean adults who stutter exist and to find out their characteristics, if any . For this purpose, normal adult s (NA)(N=103), adult s who stutter (AWS )(N=40) and graduate student s who were studying speech - language pathology or special education (GS)(N=57) were asked to circle one of the seven intervals on each of the 25 items which show trait s which are used in order to describe stutterer s. T he findings were as follows : (1) all three groups hold an unfavorable stereotype that adult s who stutter are tense, (2) NA showed more negative stereotypes on self- derogatory - bragging, guarded- open, and inflexible- flexible items than AWS, but showed more positive stereotypes on dull- intelligent and bland- emotional items than AWS, and (3) GS showed more positive stereotypes on dull- intelligent and bland- emotional than AWS. Some clinical implication s of the finding s are discus sed.
