Hatchett H I S
This study supports Fromm’s theory that different patterns of family relationships are related to purpose in life in constructive & destructive behavior. Subjects were selected from the upper & lower 27% of a population of 439 high school juniors, creating a constructive & a destructive group of 107 students each. The PIL & kFAT were administered & results statistically analyzed. Destructive subjects were found to have more negative perceptions of their families & lower purpose in life.
