Johnson, William L.; Johnson, Annabel M.; Murphy, Stanley D.; Weiss, Ardith; Zimmerman, Kurt J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
This study examined the factor structure of Form G of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (K. Briggs and I. Myers, 1987). A third-order component analysis of a sample of 486 college students yielded three higher-order components. These findings contribute to the literature pertaining to the generalized structure of the instrument. (SLD)

Tests for CA and SPOD are reviewed. (SLD)

Fortunato, Vincent J.; Stone-Romero, Eugene F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
