The Bender-Gestalt Test: A Factor Analytic Study of Each Design as it Relates to Various Individual Personality Traits

Yeargan, Dollye 05 1900 (has links)
Is it possible that the Bender-Gestalt (B-G) protocol of an individual is complex of many different, discrete, perceptual tests? Is it possible to find the relationships among the scoring factors for the B-G and by factor analysis find some systematic order among the individual designs useful in predicting specific behavioral propensities? If a consistent relationship can be shown to exist between scorable deviations on the B-G designs and certain personality variables among individuals, then perhaps a start can be made toward predictive validity of the B-G.

Personality traits and locus of control as predictors of work motivation

Rajan, Sandhya Puthanpurayil 10 April 2008 (has links)
The present research sought to firstly, understand the role of personality traits in the field of work motivation, to understand the relationship between these variables and to understand if personality traits could attempt to predict sources of work motivation. Thereafter, the relationship between the locus of control construct and intrinsic and extrinsic work motivation, respectively, was investigated. The secondary foci were to investigate the relationship between the demographic variables of age, race and field of work, respectively, and source of motivation. The current research used existing work motivation theories as a basis for understanding and explaining the construct of work motivation and used trait theory as a background to understand personality. Individuals from various fields, engaged in full-time work, were the sample for this research. Lecturers from various faculties at the University of the Witwatersrand, as well as, individuals in different fields of work, outside of the University, was the sample of the research. The final sample consisted of 61 individuals. Significant positive relationships were found between intrinsic work motivation and socially proper behaviour, and between extrinsic work motivation and self-discipline. While a significant negative relationship was found between intrinsic work motivation and tension. Furthermore, it was found that sensitivity and self-discipline appear to be predictors of extrinsic work motivation. Sensitivity and socially proper behaviour were positive predictors of intrinsic work motivation, while, the personality trait of being tense and conservative was found to be negative predictors of intrinsic work motivation. In addition, significant positive relationships were found between locus of control and sources of motivation while no significant relationships were found between the demographic variables and work motivation.

Zhang, Shu-Han 12 August 2004 (has links)
The purpose of this study is to use relevant research to understand whether or not a temporary worker¡¦s personality traits, job satisfaction, and the probability of finding an acceptable alternative job will influence their desire to switch jobs. In this study, 260 questionnaires were passed out to temporary workers in 11 schools. 141 were returned and 140 were valid. The tables cited in this of questionnaire are commonly used in similar studies abroad, and, therefore, commonly recognized as validity. With this in mind, a test the validity of the tables was not carried out for this study. After performing the Cronbach alpha value reliability test, ordinal regression was employed to analyze the data. The following conclusions were reached: First, intrinsic job satisfaction has a significant negative effect on temporary school employee turnover intention. Second, extrinsic job satisfaction has a significant negative effect on temporary school employee turnover intention. Third, the probability of finding an acceptable alternative job has a significant positive effect on temporary school employee turnover intention. Fourth, being a family¡¦s principle wage earned has a significant positive effect on temporary school employee turnover intention. Fifth, personality traits, and demographic statistics have no significant effect on temporary school employee job satisfaction.
