The study to be presented in this thesis is a direct outgrowth of four years of work by the writer and his associates. Because none of the previous studies has been published and no statement of the over-all purpose of this study exists, it was deemed advisable to review the entire background of the present investigation. Therefore, the thesis has been divided into two parts.
Part One Shall: (1) demonstrate that the color association test resulted from a combination of color matching technique and the word association method; (2) present the purpose for which the test was developed; (3) review early investigations of the test; (4) present a tentative rationale for the test; and (5) review formal investigations of the rationale.
Part Two is the body of the thesis. It shall (1) present the direct background leading to the specific problem under investigation and (2) report the present investigation. Part Two is presented independently of Part One. Thus, if the reader wishes to concern himself primarily with the present investigation, he may go directly to Part Two. In order to make Part Two self-sufficient, it has been necessary to have minor repetitions of material contained in Part One.
