Pagination or Media Count:
From an intensive examination of 100 randomly selected files of individuals who had been committed to the State Training School for Boys, Redwing, Minnesota during the period of 1954-57 subjects were classified as representing one of the four principal systems or modes of conceptual functioning posited by Harvey, Hunt and Schroder 1961. It was found that System 2 individuals, those with the more negative attitudes toward authority and its representatives, comprised almost 50 of the boys that had been committed only once while they comprised 65 of the recidivists. Possible changes in the training programs for improved rehabilitation of System 2 individuals was briefly suggested. Author
