A STUDY OF MATHEMATICAL ABILITY INVOLVING DIGIT RELATIONSHIPS. FINAL REPORT.
KNAPP, ROBERT H.
ATTITUDES OF STUDENTS TOWARD ARABIC NUMBERALS AND THEIR ASSOCIATIONS WITH THE NUMBERS FROM 1 TO 9 WERE INVESTIGATED IN A SERIES OF FIVE STUDIES ON (1) NONQUANTITATIVE ASSOCIATIONS TO NUMERALS AS A FUNCTION OF AGE, ABILITY LEVEL, AND SEX AMONG AMERICAN CHILDREN, (2) COLOR ASSOCIATIONS WITH NUMERALS AMONG MALE COLLEGE STUDENTS, (3) PERSONALITY ATTRIBUTES AND PERFORMANCE ON NUMERICAL ATTITUDE AND PERFORMANCE SCALES, (4) ASSOCIATIONS TO NUMERALS IN ITALIAN, DANISH, AND AMERICAN SAMPLES, (5) SEX DIFFERENCES IN QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSES TO ITEMS DEALING WITH NUMERALS AND QUANTIFICATION AMONG HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. AN ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS WERE PRESENTED FOR EACH OF THE STUDIES. ALTHOUGH THE RESULTS OF THE FIRST STUDY FAILED TO DEMONSTRATE A MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ASSOCIATIONS WITH NUMERALS AND ARITHMETIC ATTAINMENTS, THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT THE RESULTS OF THIS INVESTIGATION PROVED A WIDESPREAD CONSENSUS IN THE INTERPRETATION OF NUMERALS AND THE FACT THAT VARIATIONS WITHIN THIS CONSENSUS MAY BE RELATED TO SIGNIFICANT PERSONALITY DIMENSIONS. THE AUTHOR SUGGESTS THAT THE STUDY RESULTS OFFER THE POSSIBILITY FOR DEVELOPING A PERSONALITY TEST OF SOME VALUE. (AL)
