Abstract:

A method of demonstrating the common factor structure of three or more data matrices devel oped by Horst was applied to a set of personality items administered with three different sets of instructions. The principal axis factors under lying each of the three forms of the question naire were determined and the resulting factor loading matrices were rotated by an analytic method so that the corresponding factors from each subtest were maximally correlated and the non-corresponding factor correlations were min imized. Six common factors were established. Applications of this method to situations where several measurement techniques are used on a single group or a single techque is used on several groups were indicated. Author
