Abstract

135 subjects from the general community were given Trodahl and Powell's shortened dogmatism scale and a scale which measured attitudes toward law and order. As predicted, high dogmatics were significantly more favorable to a law order position than low dogmatics. This was interpreted as resulting from the tendency of the highly dogmatic person to accept noncritically value judgments espoused by legitimate authority figures.
