Field-Independence: A Function of Sex and Socialization in Cuban and American Adolescents.
Britain, Susan D.; Abad, Marcy
The relationship between field-dependence and cultural biases towards control and discipline practices was explored. It was hypothesized that the strict control practices described for the Cuban culture would foster greater field-dependence in their adolescents than would the practice of a U. S. born group. Seventy-two Cuban and U. S. born adolescents were tested for field-dependence-independence (FDI) and locus of control. Analyses of variance revealed no differences in locus of control; however, there were significant main effects for sex and culture in FDI. U. S. males were most field-independent followed by U.S. females, Cuban males and females. (Author)
