The fact that the female median is so much higher than the male median (about 1.3 standard deviations) is one of the remarkable features of this test. The difference is statistically significant, and in fact the female scores are situated entirely in the upper half of the score distribution.

Conservatively estimated minimum g loading: 0.04

Ranking in above table is based on the unrounded correlations. All available data is present in this table, no tests are left out except for those with less than 2 score pairs. All known pairs are used to obtain the true, honest statistics; correlations have not been artificially inflated by leaving out ceiling scores, outliers or other anomalies.

Note that on the whole there is no significant correlation with I.Q. scores so far.

Weighted average of correlations: -0.043

Ranking in above table is based on the unrounded correlations. All available data is present in this table, no tests are left out except for those with less than 2 score pairs. All known pairs are used to obtain the true, honest statistics; correlations have not been artificially inflated by leaving out ceiling scores, outliers or other anomalies.

Please be aware that correlations with these external tests are in most cases affected (depressed, typically) by one or more of the following: (1) Little overlap with the object test because of the much lower ceilings and inherent ceiling effects of the tests used in regular psychology; (2) Candidates reporting scores selectively, for instance only the higher ones while withholding lower ones; (3) Candidates reporting, or having been reported by psychometricians, incorrect scores.

Estimated loadings of Cooijmans Inventory of Neo-Marxist Attitudes on particular item types

These are estimated g factor loadings, but against homogeneous tests containing only particular item types, as opposed to non-compound heterogeneous tests. Although tending to surprise the lay person, it is not uncommon for tests to have high loadings on item types they do not actually contain themselves. Such loadings reflect the empirical fact that most tests for mental abilities measure primarily g, regardless of their contents; that the major part of test score variance is caused by g, and only a minor part by factors germane to particular item types. It is of key importance to understand that this is a fact of nature, a natural phenomenon, and not something that was built into the tests by the test constructors.

Verbal0.53
Numerical-0.63
Spatial0.14
Logical0.23
Heterogeneous-0.35

Compound tests have been left out of this table to avoid overlap.

Balanced g loading = -0.01

Although the pattern of loadings over the various item types is of interest, there are too few scores per item type category to make this significant as yet. This is so because many of the candidates on this test have no known scores on I.Q. tests.

Country n median score
Netherlands731.0
Germany530.5
United_States1128.0
Finland311.5
Sweden411.3
Denmark34.5

For reasons of privacy, only countries with 2 or more candidates are included in this table. Ranking is based on the medians, and then alphabetic.

The low scores of Scandinavian countries relative to the other countries are interesting, but the numbers are still too small to draw conclusions from that.

P.S.I.A. Just17-0.68

The P.S.I.A. scales Just and Rational are the main negative correlates of neo-Marxist attitudes, while mother's educational level is now the only significant positive correlate. The negative correlation with sex corresponds to the large sex difference on this test.

Estimated g factor loadings Upward and Downward of specific scores

In parentheses the number of score pairs on which that estimated g factor loading is based. The Upward and Downward values are calculated including the pertinent score itself. It is normal that g factor loadings go down when the range is restricted, so some inevitable depression must be taken into account.

ScoreUpward (n)Downward (n)
00.04 (127)NaN (0)
120.32 (43)0.29 (53)
24-0.26 (31)-0.26 (74)
37-0.83 (3)-0.05 (116)
80NaN (0)0.04 (127)

This table is somewhat informative already, but there are too few I.Q. test scores known to place much confidence in it.

Reliability

These are stunningly high reliabilities for a non-cognitive personality test, and in fact even higher than those of most I.Q. tests. They imply that the attitudes collected in the CINEMA are indeed a strongly correlating whole.

Robustness and overall test quality

Item analysis

q should be understood as the proportion of candidates not agreeing with that item (wherein "neutral" is considered as being halfway between agreeing and not agreeing), and r is the item's correlation with total score. The four or five items with marginal or near-zero correlations will be examined and monitored, and it may be attempted to improve their behaviour by rephrasing or replacing them, or they may be removed.

The fact that all of the items have positive correlations, and that in almost all cases those are significant and sizeable, means that the attitudes contained in this inventory form a strongly correlating whole and a genuine behavioural dimension.

The conclusions so far

  1. Females score much higher than males on neo-Marxist attitudes;
  2. The inventory has very high reliability and very small error of measurement, and measures a genuine behavioural dimension;
  3. P.S.I.A. scales Just and Rational correlate negatively with neo-Marxist attitudes;
  4. There is no significant correlation with I.Q. scores as yet;
  5. There are non-significant trends as to differential loading of the CINEMA across I.Q. tests with different item types (verbal higher than non-verbal), and as to median score per country (Scandinavian countries much lower than others).
