Abstract

It is not uncommon to hear the remark "He's a cynic", or "He has a cynical attitude" expressed in everyday conversation. During the course of an investigation designed to develop a test of cynicism, certain data were available for study in connection with cynical responses. These data were analyzed to answer several questions concerning cynicism and certain other variables. For example, are college men more cynical than women? What is the relation to religion, politics, and marriage? Does cynicism increase with age-or education?
