Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of Benzedrine sulfate on personality adjustment, as measured by two personality tests.

The two personality tests used were the Bell Adjustment Inventory and the Bernreuter Personality test. These tests were administered to ten male college students of Kansas State Teachers College, Pittsburg, Kansas.

The test scores were obtained under three different conditions. I normal score was first obtained; the ten subjects were then divided at random into two groups of five each. The first group of five took ten milligrams of Benzedrine sulfate on Monday, while the second group of five was given ten milligrams of lactose. On the following Friday, the second group was given Benzedrine while the first group was given lactose, thus a second condition of obtaining a score on the two personality tests after using lactose and a third condition of obtaining a score on the two personality tests while using Benzedrine. The procedure of giving lactose and Benzedrine was followed for two consecutive weeks.

The results of the experiment showed that ten milligrams of Benzedrine sulfate do not affect the personality adjustment, as measured by the Bell Adjustment Inventory or the Bernreuter Personality test.
