The Relationship Between the Ability to Apply Certain of the Principles of Dynamics to New Situations and the Discrepancy Measured Between High School Male Students' Concept of Self and Their Ideal Self.
Waldstein, Morris
This investigation was performed to test the hypothesis that male high school students of high discrepancy score on self-concept would be less able to apply principles of dynamics to new situations than male high school students of low discrepancy score. The discrepancy score was the difference between self-concept and ideal self as calculated with the Bill's High School Index of Adjustment and Values. The ability to apply principles of dynamics was determined by the score on a test constructed for this purpose. The relation between the ability to apply dynamics was found to correlate moderately with IQ; the discrepancy score was found to have virtually no correlation with IQ. (Author/PS)
