Field-Dependence Factors in American Indian and Caucasian Obesity.
Pine, Charles J.
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v40 n1 p205-09 Jan 1984
Compared urban obese and nonobese American Indians and Caucasians on the Group Embedded Figures Test (N=160). Results indicated an apparent relationship between obesity and field-independence for Caucasians, but not for American Indians. American Indians were more field-dependent, which implies a social conformity factor. (JAC)
