Shaghayegh Ebrahimi 1, Mahnaz Askarian 2
This study was intended to investigate whether intellectual biorhythm has effects on behavioral dimensions of exceptional children. To achieve this aim, 6o exceptional students in Tehran were selected based on Morgan table of determining sample size. Afterwards, each student filled in Seattle Personality Questionnaire twice; when the intellectual biorhythm was high and low. Then the gathered data was analyzed. The results of paired-sample t-test revealed that there was a significant difference between behavioral dimensions and high and low intellectual biorhythm. The present study displayed that the possibility of having negative behaviors is high when the level of intellectual biorhythm is low. Considering this, parents and teachers need to be aware of the importance of this biorhythm in order to lower the negative reactions and increase the self-concept and positive performance of exceptional children in society.
