Abstract

A test of Personal Attitudes by Sweet was given to 423 delinquent boys in the Iowa Training School at Eldora, and to 419 public school boys of approximately the same age and grade. The attitudes measured are Self-Criticism, Criticism of the Average Boy, Feeling of Difference, Feeling of Superiority and Inferiority, Deviation from the Group Idea of the Right, and Social Insight. The delinquent boys were found to be more critical of the average boy, to feel themselves nearer to the ideal than most boys, to have less insight into the feelings of boys in general, than the non-delinquent.
