A matrix similar to the one developed for the Myers-Briggs

(Table IX) '#as also printed by the computer for the items of the

Personal Preference Ranking List. The computer program used developed

groups means using the T-test to show the statistical significance

of each of the four broad areas. The areas, educational improvement,

finance and facilities, community relations, and personnel were all

tested for significance. Based on a significance level for two tailed

tests of .878, using the degree of freedom of three and the .05 level,

significance was found for all areas. This matrix can be seen in

Table XIII.

It was explained earlier that the t1Yers-Briggs alone could not

determine acceptance or rejection of the four hypotheses; neither can

the Personal Preference Ranking List. Therefore it was necessary to

1 ift still additional data from the computer.

Consequently the researcher also used Chi Square from the com-

puter program to determine what relationship, if any, would be found

between preference scores on the primary E-I Scale of the Myers-Briggs

Indicator and scores on the Personal Preference List. Twenty-two E

preferences were compared to their corresponding four scores on the

Personal Preference Ranking List; Eight I preferences were compared

to their corresponding scores. This was done by the computer using

the sums of the responses that each extrovert indicated in the four

broad areas on the Personal Preference Ranking List, as well as the

same process for each introvert. These sums can be seen in Table XIV.

From the same data the computer was able to run a Chi Square

test of independence ·for the extrovert and the four administrative

functions and the introvert and the four administrative functions.

This relationship can be seen in Table XV. The statistical analysis
