Abstract : 260 NAVAL CADETS WERE TIMED WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE WHILE TAKING THE Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory and Guilford-Zimmerman Temperament Survey. The time required to complete the MMPI was correlated .72 with the time required to complete the GZTS. This working time was found to be related primarily to reading speed and intelligence. Small but significant correlations were obtained between reading speed and several MMPI and GZTS scales. (Author)
