Abstract : From an intensive examination of 100 randomly selected files of individuals who had been committed to the State Training School for Boys, Redwing, Minnesota during the period of 1954-57 subjects were classified as representing one of the four principal systems or modes of conceptual functioning posited by Harvey, Hunt and Schroder (1961). It was found that System 2 individuals, those with the more negative attitudes toward authority and its representatives, comprised almost 50% of the boys that had been committed only once while they comprised 65% of the recidivists. Possible changes in the training programs for improved rehabilitation of System 2 individuals was briefly suggested. (Author)
