Substantiation studies from various sources have provided objective evidence to support their assurance in the instrument and this increasing predisposition to administer the personal inventories in combination with others in order to acquire comprehensive images of individual personalities. The time required for administration and scoring of these three inventories has caught the attention for the need of single inventory which would supply in the same way complete coverage in a more reasonable and efficient approach. Inter correspondence studies of the 13 traits scores have specified that some practical considerations and exceptions could well be endured. Guilford held a number of posts at Nebraska and briefly at the University of Southern California. In he entered the U.

Open in a separate window Note. N refers to the number of individuals having exactly the specified number of administrations. Mean age is averaged across all administrations. Age range is from youngest age at first administration to oldest age at last administration.
Time interval is the mean and range of years between first and last administrations. About Dropouts consisted of 4. The last four columns of Table 2 provide the proportion of deceased and dropouts by gender and the number of administrations.
There is a higher rate of deceased men women entered the study two decades after men , and the rate of dropouts was slightly higher for participants with only one administration. Indeed, in the active cohort, At their first GZTS administration, individuals who subsequently dropped out of the study were younger 43 vs.
After controlling for age, year tested, sex, and education, individuals who dropped out of the study did not differ from those who did not on the ten GZTS scales at their first administration. At their first GZTS administration, individuals who died in the course of the study were older 64 vs. After controlling for age, year tested, sex, and education, individuals deceased in the course of the study differed from those who had not died on only one of the ten GZTS scales at their first administration.
Estimated marginal means indicated that participants who died were lower on Emotional Stability compared to those who were still alive in Therefore, small variations in the number of participants will be seen in the analyses for different scales. Internal consistency reliability coefficients range from. Test-retest reliability estimates for the ten scales ranged from. Retest stability coefficients over a year interval ranged from. Even data from individuals who were tested only on a single occasion can be used to stabilize estimates of mean and variance.
In this way, all available data can be included in the analyses. This is a major advantage of conducting analysis within the HLM framework; by contrast, missing data and varying timing pose major problems in conventional repeated measures ANOVA. Furthermore, longitudinal HLM can estimate age-trajectories over a broad age span from 20 to 90 using data collected in a shorter time interval up to 42 years.
For each trait a stepwise procedure was adopted to evaluate longitudinal trajectories. First level-1 linear and then quadratic models were tested. Level-2 variables were retained in the final model if they improved the fit of the model, or in other words, explained a significant amount of the variance in mean intercept or slope. Finally we examined possible effects of attrition and death on the intercept and slopes of the ten scales.
At level-2, year of birth in decades was centered on the sample mean year of birth Results Before describing changes in personality traits we evaluate the proportions of between- and within-subjects variance, and examine to what extent the within-subject variance is explained by age.
