Numerous studies relating adjustment to perseveration are given in the first chapter. The present study investigated this relationship in order to ascertain whether those high in shift ability will make better social than emotional adjustments and those law in shirt ability will be better adjusted emotionally than socially. The logic for the above hypothesis has been that the ability to change, flexibility, is helpful in dealing with people and social situations, but may create an instability within the individual. Also investigated in this research were the relationship between intelligence, and shift ability, conservatism and adjustment, and also the relationship between conservatism and adjustment.
