Abstract: The primary purpose of this study was to determine whether measurable relationships exist among selected types of clothing interest and personality characteristics believed to be associated with the different levels of adjustment. A non-incarcerated and an incarcerated group were compared on the basis of the clothing concerns measured by Creekmore’s 1968 "Importance of Clothing Questionnaire" and the personality factors identified by the 1967-68 edition of Cattell's 16 PF Test, Form A. Biographical information was collected by means of a demographic data sheet. A total of 188 women participated. Ninety-four were students enrolled at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro during the first summer session, 1974. The remaining 94 respondents were women concurrently enrolled in the prison school of The Correctional Center for Women, Raleigh, North Carolina.
