Auther : By: Mohammed Oudeh

        
           The purpose of this study is to explore personality traits related to cases of mal-adjustment and psychic disorders of both sexes.  Cattles (16 PF) Test being standardized in Kuwait under “Factorial Personality Test”, was administered to a sample composing three different groups (t.N = 258) :

         (a)  The mal-adjusted (N = 108),

         (b) The psychic disorderly (N = 39) and

         (c) The normal (N = 111). 

Statistical analyses of the data were carried out by the computer service at Kuwait University, employing MANOVA ( 2 x 3 ) along with Dunchen and Sheefe’s.  The findings indicated variances among the three groups in terms of three personality factors as follows:

        1) Factor (B): the mal-adjusted are more intelligent than the psychic disorderly, while both are less intelligent than the normal.

        2) Factor (H): the maladjusted are more adventurous than the psychic disorderly, while both are less adventurous than the normal.

        3) Factor (Q4): the maladjusted are less tense than the psychic disorderly, while both are tenser than the normal.

 The results also show significant differences between the mal-adjusted and the psychic disorderly according to both males and females in general in terms of ten factors of personality as follows:
