A STUDY OF PERSONALITY: A WESTERN AND SOVIET POINT OF VIEW
Abstract:A theoretical and experimental comparison is made of Eysenck's and Norakidze's work. The Soviet interpretation of set is a state of the subject in which prior events or activity conditions an individual to perceive stimuli or to react to stimuli in a specific manner. For Western psychologists, set has varied meanings. Experimentally, hysterics and dysthymics significantly differ in set trials on Uznadze set tasks; however, the neurotics and non-neurotics, extraverts and introverts do not differ on set tasks.
