Forty-two college freshmen participated in three tests. The first was a specially prepared Vietnam Attitude Test, designed to discriminate between "Hawks" and "Doves." The second test was the Allport-Vernon Study of Values and the third test was the Personality Dimension Scales of the Educational Testing Services's College Student Questionaires. The findings support the supposition that real personality differences exist between "Hawks" and "Doves." "Doves" are found to be more liberal, more aesthetic, more independent, and more culturally sophisticated than "Hawks," while "Hawks" are found to be more economically and politically oriented than "Doves."
