Wilkes, John M.
The MBTI personality measure is used in a secondary analysis of personality data collected from the Worcester High Schools. With cooperation of the Worcester Police Department, the data set of students was linked to the arrest records of Worcester. This study looks at the probability of committing three types of crime by personality type. Using a sampling frame of local students, I am able to get a perspective on the problem of "home grown" crime in a middle-sized Northeastern city.
