College populations are rapidly growing and many millions or young people will have a chance for college in the future who would not have had an opportunity for such an education some years ago. Factors making for success in college become more important as the population increases and facilities become more limited. The present investigation is directed to the matter of adjustment to college life and the prediction of such adjustment with the use of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory.

Human personality has been the object or much re­ search and discussion through the centuries. Many psychol­ ogists have proposed various theories or personality and many experimenters have tried to devise instruments for measuring personality. Rating scales, personality inven­ tories and projective measures have been used to investi­ gate personality. Perhaps the most widely used Personality Inventory today is the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory.
