A quota sample of 1,442 subjects was administered a Wilson-Patterson type questionnaire of social attitudes containing 68 items. Correlations were calculated between items, and a factor analysis carried out. 13 meaningful primary factors were discovered, the correlations between which gave rise to 2 major higher-order factors. These were closely similar in content to the Radicalism and Toughmindedness factors previously isolated in research with more orthodox types of items.
