Abstract

A number of studies, Frank (2), Gardner (3) and Gould (4), have been concerned with the generality of level of aspiration. In these investigations the subject's level of aspiration on several tasks was measured and various indicies of generality computed. Correlations of aspiration scores ranged from .04 to 70. The primary considerations involved in selecting the tasks the subject performed in these investigations were that they be relatively independent of each other and provide for reliable measurement. Most of them were motor or speed of reaction tasks as card sorting, throwing quoits, cancellation, and digit symbols. Different response measures were thus necessitated-time, points, number done, etc.
