A note on "Color-Word Test performance and drive regulation in three vocational groups" by Levine

David L. Wolitzky

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Disputes the conclusion of F. J. Levine (see record 1969-04002-001) that there was a lack of support for the concept of constricted vs. flexible cognitive control measured by the Color Word Task. It is suggested that this conclusion is misleading in view of issues concerning the logic of the derived predictions and the statistical power of the study.
