Mathematically, this looks as follows: aij=bj1F1i+bj2F2i+bj3F3i.. – +bjNFNi where a, the act in situation j for individual i, is estimated by the status of i on the various factors F1 to FN and by the weights bj on these factors for the specific situation. Translated into everyday language the equation may look like this: Cattell, Eber and Tatsuoka (1970) in the 16PF handbook provide various equations to calculate the efficacy of people at various jobs based on their personality scores (the letters refer to the personality trait dimensions from the 16PF).

The ‘rich get richer and the poor get poorer’ phenomenon was prevalent for the groups by management level on the dimension factors of general effectiveness, administrative skills, and stability of performance. The higher-level groups held their own and the lower-level groups declined in interpersonal skills. In the case of the adjustment groups, there was no particular increase in these important managerial qualities on the part of either the well-adjusted or the moderately adjusted, but the poorly adjusted declined markedly.
