Critics have occasionally asserted that the number of factors in the 16PF tests is too large. This study discusses factor-analytic methodology and reviews more than 50 studies in the field. It concludes that the number of important primaries encapsulated in the series is no fewer than the stated number. (Author/JAZ)

Kappes, Bruno M.; Parish, Thomas S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
As evidence that the Personal Attribute Inventory (PAI) is a self-concept scale, the present study required 265 college students to respond to it and to the Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF). As hypothesized, the PAI was significantly related to the self-concept factor on the 16 PF. (Author/CTM)

The athletes appeared to be more dominant, suspicious, self-sufficient, tense, and less sensitive. (CTM)
