Recall and Recognition in Industrial Technology Education Students.
Schultz, Andrew E.
A study determined whether sensate and intuitive learners differed in their capacity to recall and recognize images given two different times of exposure. The 158 subjects--elementary school technology teachers in Southern California--put themselves into 2 groups of 80 and 78 by registering for a first or second session of the Elementary Summer Technology Training Institute. Three images from three categories were developed: men's faces, animal faces, and letters of the alphabet. Nine equal-sized posters using three of the images, one from each category, were hung in the student cafeteria for three (first session) or four (second session) consecutive days. On these days, subjects ate three meals in this facility. Those in the 3-day exposure period were exposed to the images for about 8 hours, those in the 4-day exposure period for about 12 hours. After each exposure period, the images were removed. Subjects were administered the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. A week later, a questionnaire was distributed that probed the extent to which sensate and intuitive subjects were able to recall and recognize those images. Data analysis revealed that, although sensate subjects in the 8-hour group were significantly less able to recall these images than the intuitive subjects, they were able to recall the same number of images after 12 hours of exposure. There were no significant differences, however, between intuitive and sensate subjects in their ability to recognized over 8 or 12 hours of exposure. (Contains 18 references) (YLB)
