Psychological Aspects Of Clothing, Marty Mcdonald

Honors Theses

This research was conducted with no established set of hypotheses as guidelines. It was done to point out certain attitudes about clothing and inadvertently, how consciously or unconsciously, ideas are formed about dress.

A questionnaire was prepared for the study. It required the subject to give his age, sex, and classification, but no name.

These questions were given to forty subjects, twenty males and twenty females.

Honors Theses
