Second order factors of the CAQ in a normal population
Schwartz, S. A.(1976). Second Order Factors of the CAQ in a Normal Population. Multivariate Experimental Clinical Research, 2(4), 167-172.
The purpose of the study was to determine how pathological and personality source traits would align in data obtained from a normal sample. The Clinical Analysis Questionnaire (CAQ) was administered to 251 undergraduates and the data subjected to an oblique factor analysis. Ten interpretable second order factors were extracted, yielding a moderate relationship with a previous analysis (Cattell, 1973). It was concluded that a relatively different factor structure was necessary for a normal population than was found for the prior mixed normal-pathological sample.
