Gillis, J. S., Cattell, R. B. (1979). Comparison of Second-Order Personality Structures at 6-8 Years with Later Patterns. Multivariate Experimental Clinical Research, 4(4), 93-99.
The Early School Personality Questionnaire was administered to 630 children in grades 2 and 3. The primary scale scores were inter-correlated and the resulting matrix was factor analysed resulting in 4 second-order factors that were rotated to maximum simple structures. It was found that the second-order factors corresponded quite well with patterns that have previously been identified at older age levels; anxiety, cortertia and intelligence. The other factor was tentatively identified as exvia.
