Body boundary and field-dependence.


This study investigated the relationship between body boundary articulation, as measured by Fisher and Cleveland, and Witkin's field dependence-independence dimensions of perception. While these two concepts seem to be logically connected, no significant relationships (rs of .15 to .35) were obtained for 20 undergraduates. There is a need for further clarification and refinement in the concepts of Penetration and Barrier scores for body image.
