Abstract

Various studies made by Voelker and Howells have indicated specific tendencies to cheat in persons. Martson found that women were 14 times as honest and 9 times as truthful as men on the average. An unpublished study by Johns and Lauer, made of 94 delinquent boys, indicated a tendency to cheat in certain subject matter. The examinees tended to overstate their knowledge of music and parts of automobiles, but gave a more or less correct statement of knowledge concerning books of the Bible. The present study is an attempt to secure data on comparison of tendency of students to cheat and to overstate their understanding of certain subject matter with three types of attitudes: superstition, law observance and tolerance in conventional directions.
