    Relationships between cognitive and temperament traits and the concept of "style"
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1975) Wardell, Douglas; Royce, J.R.
    Examines certain cognitive-affective relationships by suggesting that they represent overlapping stylistic consistencies. First, literature is reviewed linking flexibility of closure with the objective test temperamental trait of Independence (U.I.19) as the major source trait underlying Witkin's conventional style of field articulation. Similarly, speed of closure is linked with Inhibition (U.I.17) as a more broad representation of the cognitive control, extensiveness of scanning. Finally, various fluency factor are linked with the source trait of Exuberance (U.I.21) underlying much creative activity. It is suggested that these three global styles are also represented by Royce's three "epistemic styles"; namely, rationalism, empiricism, and metaphorism respectively. It is reiterated that multivariate-theoretical analysis is necessary to further substantiate these suggestions of strong substantive and theoretical convergencies across methodologically divergent laboratories.

    An investigation of the common factor space of some well known questionnaire scales: the Eysenck EPI, the Comrey scales and the IPAT Trait-State kit (CST)
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1975) Barton, Keith; Cattell, Raymond B. (Raymond Bernard), 1905-1998
    In the domain of measurement of personality by questionnaire, the last decade has been one of integration. At least among the designers of factored scales, if not among others, there have been attempts systematically to discover the common factor space and the relative standing of the various scales therein (Cattell, 1973; Comrey & Duffy, 1968; Derman & Harman, 1973; Eysenck & Eysenck, 1968).

    Relation of Divergent-Production Abilities to Verbal and Non-Verbal IQS
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1975) Guilford, J.P.
    Semantic, divergent-production (DP) tests have been known to correlate higher with IQS, and to show greater incidence of triangular scatter plots (some very low DP scores with IQS but no very high DP scores with low IQS) than do visual-figural tests. The two kinds of DP tests were studied in relation to both verbal and nonverbal IQS from the Lorge-Thorndike scale, Level III, with children. Only slight tendencies were found for stronger relationships between tests and IQS with similar contests--semantic and visual-figural. This result was attributed in part to lack of clear-cut distinction made by the two IQS and the possible higher-order factors cutting across the four kinds of tests.
