MARILYN'S SILVER ANNIVERSARY:

1

By GAYLE GREENE F
The same competitive spirit
which prompts the "I can do any
thing as well as a man" may be a
factor which prevents woman
from relaxing in testing situations
where men are present according
to a 'recent survey by Roger
Brown, instructor in the psycho-
logy department.
The preliminary experiments
conducted this summer with stu-
dents in all levels of the Univer-
sity as well as with high school
seniors revealetd that students who
are especially eager to do well on
a test are likely to cling to the
first method of solution that oc-
cures to them and to be blinded
to simpler but less obvious solu-
tions.
*I * *
"FOR MANY' people an import-
ant test is just another hurdle to
be taken in stride," Brown pointed
out.
For others, however, the test-
ing atmosphere seems to arouse
anticipations of failure and a
considerable degree of anxiety,
giving them a tendency to freeze
on the first tenable solution, he
explained.
The test, designed to measure
the rigidity-flexibility personality
traits also disclosed similar rea-
sons for the formation of over-
simplified solutions to social prob-
lems.
A PUBLIC opinion question-
naire made up of "pat" social atti-
tudes which are commonly ac-
cepted, with space for the subject
to indicate the degree of agree-
ment with the statement reealed
that the same student who "tight-
ens up" in .an exam because of
anxiety for his academic status is
likely to adhere to ready-made,
apparently safe answers to social
problems.
Students in university class-
rooms and Detroit high school
seniors w e r e introducd to
Brown in varying atmospheres.
At times he was presented for-
mally as a member of the Office
of Naval Research, inciting an-
xiety among draft eligible males.
At other times Brown sauntered
casually into a classroom, was pre-
sented as a graduate student
working on a master's thesis who
needed "guinea pigs" for research.
In a relaxed and easy atmosphere
the students complied, regarding
the whole procedure as a psycho-
logist's whim.
In this manner, with a variety
of atmospheres, he was able to
compare the degree of difficulty
in solving the math problems with
the degree of acceptance of "in-
sidious" social attitudes.
Director To Go
To ParisMeet
Dorwin Cartwright, director of
the Research Center for Group
Dynamics will leave for Paris to-
day where he will participate in an
international meeting of social
scientists.
The meeting, which has been
arranged by UNESCO, will center
around a study of the problem of
improving techniques for con-
ducting international conferences.

THE. HARD WAY-There is an easy method of manipulating
three ficticious water bottles with capacities of 11, 25 and 8 gallons
in order to have a remainder of eight. But tests made by Roger
Brown, of the psychology department, show that students are
apt to stick to the first method they find successful. (Hard way--
25 minus 11 minus 3, twice equals 8 . . . Easy way 11 minus 3
equals 8.)
