Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the school principal's personality traits and their impact on his decision-making ability. This effort is undertaken through special consideration of a conceptual model which helps the researcher to view the main problem and its various aspects affected by change within the social setting. Chapter I gives an introduction to this project by describing the interplay between continuous change and the educational scene. The school principal's role and significance are highlighted from several angles, illuminating his instructional and administrative tasks, and approaching the possibility of gathering data and contributing to the solution of problems through the use of models. These may be of an algebraic or a geometrical type.
