Relationships of Philosophic Mindedness and Intellectual Self-Confidence with Verbal Ability and Deductive Reasoning Skills.
Hiller, Jack H.; And Others
Relationships among Philosophic Mindedness (PM) (a measure of cognitive flexibility), Intellectual Self-Confidence (ISCS), ACT English (ACT-E) and the ability to reason deductively (PCRT) were obtained for 46 female and 45 male undergraduates. ISCS and PM both correlated with total PCRT performance as well as or better than ACT-E for females. However, ACT-E was much higher correlate of total PCRT for males than either ISCS or PM. Both ISCS and PM correlated significantly (p more than .05) with ACT-E for males, but neither significantly correlated for females. (Author)
