An Investigation of the Relation Between the Developmental Parabolic Curve and Selected Personality Variables.
Flugsrud, Marcia R.
This study is designed to determine whether data obtained cross-sectionally from a sample of subjects in the middle childhood range on selected personality characteristics could be well described by a concave parabolic curve and thus linked to the closure behaviour elicited from the subjects. Specifically, the investigation seeks to determine if the measures of selected personality traits display a parabolic curve similar to that displayed by the initial closure data on the Higgins-Wertman Test of Visual Closure (H-W) over the ages seven, eight, nine and ten years. Initial closure was assessed by the H-W and selected personality traits were assessed by the Children's Personality Questionnaire. Subjects were 20 male and 20 female children at each age level. The initial closure data, over age, was reported by Higgins and Wertman (1968) to form a concave parabolic curve for males and females combined. Results of this study replicate those findings.
