Validez estructural de los lineogramas del psicodiagnóstico mio kinético, revisado y digitalizado (PMK-RD)

En este estudio hemos aplicado un análisis de componentes principales a los datos obtenidos a partir del registro gráfico de la conducta motora sin visión. Los datos provienen de dos muestras, una de varones y la otra de mujeres. La dominancia manual ha sido controlada en las dos muestras. Se han obtenido cinco factores independientes: factor I (tendencia a aumentar o disminuir la longitud), factor II (tendencia a desviarse en la dirección sagital), factor V (tendencia a desviarse en la dirección frontal); dos factores (III y IV) se han encontrado en la dirección transversal. Esta estructura factorial no depende del sexo, ya que ha resultado la misma en ambos sexos, ni puede ser explicada por el aprendizaje, ya que aparecen los mismos factores en una y otra mano, excepto en los factores III y IV que son diferentes para cada mano. Este estudio sustenta diferentes disposiciones motoras como base de las tendencias de conducta.

Structural validity of miokinetic psychodiagnosis-revised and digityalyzed (MKP-RD) lineograms. In this study, we have applied a principal components analysis to the data obtained from a graphical record of motor behaviour performed without vision. The data was obtained from two samples, one made up of men and the other one made up of women. Hand dominance was controlled in both samples. Five independent factors were obtained: Factor I (Tendency to increase or decrease the length), Factor II (Tendency to deviate in a sagittal direction), Factor V (Tendency to deviate in a frontal direction); two factors (III and IV) were found in a transversal direction. This factor structure did not depend on sex, because the same structure was found in both sexes, nor it could be explained by learning, because the same factors appeared for each hand, except for Factors III and IV which were different for each hand. This study supports different motor dispositions as foundations of behaviour tendencies.
