    Description

    The present study established relationships between individual differences and subjective evaluation of different kinds of landscapes. These were the first three principle components of the five components obtained from a matrix of coincidences. The three components used were: 1) natural versus humanized landscapes; 2) pleasant versus rough landscapes; 3) straight and neat forms versus round and diffuse forms. The subjects were taken from male and female university students. These subjects completed several psychological tests: CEP, 16PF and Embedded Figures Test. The data obtained from these tests were correlated with the components of the ecological test. The following hypotheses were presented for, and supported by the research that was carried out: 1) Personality structure conditions the choice of landscape; 2) the sex variable can influence landscape preference. This influence can be direct or influenced by personality factors.
