Abstract:
Ego-identity is influenced by many factors. Formal operations and field-dependence have often been cited as important factors in the level of ego-identity achieved. One hundred fifty-three introductory Psychology students were given the Personal Orientation Inventory as a measure of ego-identity and actualization, a test of Formal Operations developed by Karen Hardy-Brown and the Embedded Figures test as a measure of Field-dependence. No correlation was found between any of the measures indicating that a persons ego-identity was not related to the use of Formal Operations or field-dependence. A factor analysis was also performed with each instrument loading on a separate factor.
