    The nurse: A helping personality?
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1975) Rose, Lucien D.; Lawlis, G. Frank
    Today nursing as a profession offers a wide variety of specialties which requires varying degrees of direct nurse-patient interaction. The purpose of this study was to determine what personality factors correlated to student nurses' preferences to be more patient oriented as opposed to technique oriented in their approach to their work. It was discovered that the patient-oriented group was composed of two subgroups. One subgroup contained student nurses who were rather self-actualized while the other subgroup was motivated toward a patient orientation to nursing by a need to submit to others. Similarly, the technique oriented student nurses were also found to be composed of two subgroups. One subgroup's technique orientation sprang from a need to remain detached and reserved in social situations while the other subgroup's technique orientation was based on a need to dominate and lead others. The results of this research tend to lend credence to the thesis that behavioral functions may be motivated by a variety of personality factors.

    Factor structure of the Figure-Drawing Test
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1975) Schori, T.R.; Thomas, Caroline Bedell, 1904-1997
    The Figure-Drawing Test was administered to 788 male Caucasian John Hopkins medical students. The tests were scored by slightly modified versions of the Jones and Thomas (1964, 1965) technique for scoring structural and graphic characteristics plus the sophistication-of-body-concept scale ratings of Witkin (Witkin et al, 1962; Thomas, 1966). From these data 10 independent factors which accounted for a substantial proportion of the variance associated with the 57 figure-drawing variables used were factor analytically identified. Six if these factors were related to descriptive characteristics of the drawings, e.g., sophistication and nudity. Two of the factors are related to graphic characteristics of the drawings, or techniques used in drawing the figures, such as the degree of line pressure. The final 2 factors are related to how the figures were positioned on the page.

    Third order personality structure in Q-Data: Evidence from eleven experiments
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1975) Cattell, Raymond B. (Raymond Bernard), 1905-1998
    Eleven samples of subjects averaging 1010 in each, covering different countries (U.S.A., Germany, New Zealand, Venezuela and Brazil), classes and each sex, were measured on the 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire. Correlations among the scales were carried to second order factors of high mutual congruence and therefore identification in previous researches. Two studies, including seven extra primaries, yield 4 secondaries than the 8 in the rest.

    A factor analytic study of manifest anxiety and abstract-concrete word recall
    (Western Institute of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, 1975) Reynolds, Stephen L.; Burdsal, Charles A.
    The study included 96 psychology undergraduate volunteers at the Kansas State Teacher's College. After being assigned at random to abstract and concrete word treatment conditions, a word association task was completed. Then the Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale was administered. A factor analysis was performed upon the results yielding 15 factors related to anxiety and one factor related to memory: (1) General Apprehension; (2) Perceived Self Effectiveness; (3) Abstract Recall and Situational Incongruity vs. Concrete Recall and Anxious Incongruity; (4) Lack of Self Confidence vs. Self Confidence; (5) Emotional Reaction; (6) Hypochondriasis; (7) Social Confidence; (8) Restless Behavior vs. Complacency; (9) Driven Determination; (10) Compensatory Self Confidence; (11) Emotional Control vs. Emotional Unconstraint; (12) Fear of Emotional Release vs. Emotional Release; (13) Emotional Sensitivity; (14) Nervous Inattention vs. Concentration; (15) Emotional Instability vs. Emotional Stability; (16) Nervous Release.
