Abstract:

In recent years the Rod-and-Frame Test RFT and the Embedded-Test EFT, both theoretical indices of an individuals field dependency or independency, have been employed as effective tools in the investigation of very practical, real-world phenomena and problems. Kennedy 1972, for example, found EFT scores to be significantly related to success in aviation training for both naval aviators and naval flight officers. With this increasing popularity of the concept in general and the apparent interest demonstrated by fellow psychologists, the paper was undertaken as an extensive review of the field dependence-field dependence concept. It is hoped that this monograph presents an objective picture of the state of the art of Witkins perceptual dimension. Author
