Selecting Personality and Perceptual Characteristics of Subjects for Predicting the Effects of Counseling Treatments.
Robinson, Norman W.
This study was designed to investigate the following question: what treatment is most effective for particular types of clients with a specific problem. One of the objectives of the study was to determine if any relationship existed between two predictor variables (perceptual orientation: field independence-dependence, and personality type: extraversion-introversion) and treatment effects as shown by the criterion variables. The reasons for using these two predictor variables are that studies had been done on these variables pointing out characteristics of each. On the basis of this study it was not possible to conclude that any relationship exists between treatment effects and predictor variables. A variety of difficulties which may have contributed to these results were identified, including differences in subjects and their career development, field setting, and the treatments themselves.
