Personality variables and cognitive inconsistency

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The present research studied the relationships between personality variables and cognitive inconsistency. Cognitive inconsistency was defined on the basis of the cognitive orientation theory of Kreitler and Kreitler (1972, 1976) as inconsistency and three personality variables: Extraversion, Cattell's factor "Independence" and Cattell's factor "Radicalism- Conservatism". The implications of these results to Eysenck's and Cattell's theories were discussed.
