Abstract:

One hundred seventy-five undergraduate students took Cattell's Sixteen Personality Factor questionnaire (16 P.F.) and Thurston's Primary Mental Abilities test (PMA). Subjects were divided into the following three groups on the basis of their PMA subtest scores -A “high verbal-low spatial” group (HiV - LoS), an “intermediate” group, and a “high spatial-low verbal” group (HiS - LoV).

On the basis of previous work with HiV - LoS and HiS - LoV subjects, several personality differences between the two groups were hypothesized. Analyses of variance were conducted with personality factor scores as dependent variables and sex and ability patterns as independent variables. Results indicated that at least for male subjects, the HIS - LoV and HiV - LoS groups differed significantly on certain personality variables involving response to social stimuli.
