Relationship between Noctcaelador and Aesthetic Sensitivity: Art-Related Personality Factors Associated with College Students' Night-Sky Watching
Kelly, William E.
College Student Journal, v42 n2 p265-269 Jun 2008
This study explored the relationship between positive attitudes and behaviors concerning night-sky watching (noctcaelador) and aesthetic sensitivity. College students (N = 106) completed the Noctcaelador Inventory (Kelly, 2004a) and a shortened version of the Sensitivity Questionnaire (Child, 1965). Noctcaelador was significantly, positively related to regression in service to the ego, environmental scanning, and tolerance of ambiguity. Regression analyses indicated regression in service to the ego was the strongest predictor of noctcaelador. The results and limitations are discussed.
