Abstract:
Thirty-two juvenile delinquent males were tested for Kinesthetic Figural Aftereffects using the method developed by Petrie in an effort to determine if self-mutilation is more prevalent among kinesthetic reducers than augmenters. The results were in the predicted direction, but failed to reach significance. Verbal measures administered proved unrelated to both KFAE scores and self-mutilation category.
