The thesis in this study was that juvenile delinquents display personality defects which may be described as disorganization of the mental data. Such disorganization is thought of as a disconnectedness between the elements of the psychic material. It is thought that delinquent subjects as a group will give evidence in performance of less dynamic dependency among these data than will non-delinquent subjects as a group.
