    Human motives as dynamic states: A dR analysis of objective motivation measures
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1974) Cattell, Raymond B. (Raymond Bernard), 1905-1998; DeYoung, Gerrit E.; Horn, John L.
    This experiment is related to three main areas of current research activity--that of human motivation or "dynamic structure", that of the nature of temporary states, and, more speculatively, that of "sets" of learning.

    A large sample cross-check on 16 P.F. primary structure by parcelled factoring
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1974) Cattell, Raymond B. (Raymond Bernard), 1905-1998
    Some disputes about primary personality structure on Q-data suggested the need for an entirely fresh analysis unbiased by existing scales. Both to achieve this and to check some superiorities claimed for radial parcel over items factoring, 184 16 P.F. items were given to 780 adults. Reduced by radial parceling to 46 variables, they factored to 20 factors (19 having been found in item and scale factoring) which rotated to a statistically significant simple structure. Despite slight alterations by approximation which followed in projecting these factors on the items the item patterns significantly matched, by two indices: (a) the original "ideal" 16 P.F. keys for the primaries, and (b) an independent factoring of the same items as items. It is concluded that the 16 P.F. primaries are well confirmed ans that parceled factoring can in some respects exceed the precision of item factoring.

    Personality factors in the organizational role preferences of middle managers
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1974) Sweney, Arthur B.; Fiechtner, Leslie A.
    Organizational roles differ conceptually from personality traits but are very likely influenced by some of the same environmental and social pressures. This study of 185 active middle managers was directed at determining whether meaningful factors could be found which would affect both realms. The results showed that six of the seven factors extracted affected both realms. Only intelligence seems to appear in the personality area alone. The other factors were identified as over socialization, expressive anxiety, conservative idealism, competitive naivete, extroversion, and confrontive suspicion. Authoritarianism and equalitarian load in an opposite direction on the confrontive suspicion factor. The other roles were more complexly determined.
