Personality stability of institutionalized mentally retarded adults as measured by the Hand Test



Personality stability of institutionalized mentally retarded adults as measured by the Hand Test



Journal of Clinical Psychology 47(3): 436-439



Eighty-two institutionalized mentally retarded individuals were administered the Hand Test and a measure of intellectual/cognitive functioning (Stanford-Binet or WAIS-R) in a 3-year test-retest paradigm (longitudinal research design) to investigate the stability of personality during adulthood. Stability of both personality and intellectual functioning during adulthood was observed. Implications are discussed.
