Cultural Influence on Selective Attention Process. A Study with special Reference to Nigerian Catholic Adolescents.

Uba, Anselm. (1980-05)


The present study is concerned with the cross-culture differences in selective attention among the ethnic groups of the Ibo and Yoruba catholic adolescents of Nigeria. The general hypothesis that the Yoruba adolescents are more likely than the Ibos to possess audio-visual skill in selective attention was proposed. A group of two hundred 16-year-old adolescent boys and girls for this study were randomly drawn from four Catholic secondary schools.
