Abstract : The relationship between electronics job activity complexity, as perceived by maintenance technicians, and the intellective scale value of these activities, as perceived by psychologists and physicists, was investigated. Guilford's Structure-of-Intellect model was employed as an intellective referent. Magnitude estimation methods, based on the separate and independent judgments of the technicians, the physicists, and the psychologists, were employed to derive the required data. Moderate to fairly strong relationships were found between the scale values of the intellective factors involved in the job activities and the perceived complexity of the activities. The results may be employed for such purposes as establishing the intellective characteristics required in the jobs of electronics maintenance personnel, in curriculum content development, and posttraining performance evaluative device and instrument development.
