Description

In this study, 224 ninth graders from two similar Kentucky towns were obtained by means of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory. They were divided into various groups and analyzed in relation to a number of background factors and their resulting personality patterns. The emergence of various group patterns in this study demonstrates that the complexity of human personality necessitates complex analytic procedures.

John C. Ball is associate professor of sociology in the University of Kentucky. During the 1962-1963 academic year, he served as researcher in sociology at the Addiction Research Center, National Institute of Mental Health.
