Abstract:

This study was designed to investigate the relationship between critical flicker fusion (CFF) thresholds and five personality characteristics namely, alienation, social nonconformity, discomfort, expression, and defensiveness under three auditory stimulus conditions, such as quiet, noise, and meaningful verbal stimuli. Sixty undergraduate students, 30 males and 30 females, participated in this experiment. They were between 18 and 26 years of age. Personality characteristics and CFF thresholds were measured by the Arabic version of Lanyon's Psychological Screening Inventory and by a Visual Perception Control apparatus respectively. The results showed that (1) auditory stimulation did not have any significant effects on CFF thresholds, (2) subjects who scored high in the social nonconformity scale had higher CFF thresholds than those who scored low, and (3) no other personality characteristics had any significant effects on CFF thresholds. This finding suggests a possible connection between higher CFF thresholds and an inner tendency to revolt against an established order.
