The Description of Personality Measurements in Terms of Rotated Factors.
French, John W.
This review of factor analyses in research concerned with personality and interest measurement is presented in two main sections. Part I contains the reviews of the analyses, for each of which the following information is provided: (1) the full reference to the article describing the analysis and to the source of the data used if the data were borrowed; (2) the number and description of subjects; (3) a note on any peculiarities or unusual techniques used in the analysis; (4) a description of each of the variables; (5) factor names; (6) the table of factor loadings; (7) intercorrelations of the factors. A supplementary list of analyses omitted from this volume is given at the end of Part I. The factors identified in at least two analyses with sufficient certainty to receive a name are described in Part II. A list of analyses in which the factor appears, its description, and a list of the variables that are the best measures of the factor are given for each. A supplementary list of factors is also provided. Indexes of variables, names and factors conclude the volume. (KM)
