Abstract

Results of a study with college students who were administered the MMPI and the Stroop Color-Word Test support (a) the hypothesis that persons high in resistance to interference are more self-confident in dealing with complex situations and (b) the view that resistance to interference is a dimension closely related to a person's day-to-day coping strategies and may be useful for explaining individual differences in behavior.
