The Relationship Between Machiavellianism, External Control, and Cognitive Style Among College Students.
Maroldo, G. K.; And Others
This experiment determined relationships between Machiavellianism, locus of control, and cognitive style. One hundred fifteen subjects, 56 males and 59 females, ages 18 to 21, were selected from Interim students at Texas Lutheran College, Sequin, Texas. The Mach IV test measured Machiavellian tendencies. The I-E scale measured external attitudes. The Object Sorting Test measured categorizing style and cognitive structure by having subjects divide 50 word representations into groups. A significant intercorrelation for all subjects was found between Mach IV and I-E; no significant intercorrelation was found between Mach IV and Object Sorting, or between I-E and Object Sorting. In separating males and females on the intercorrelations, there was no significant difference. A multiple correlation among the three scores indicated some relationship between Machiavellianism, locus of control, and cognitive style. (Author)
