    The Woodworth questionnaire for emotional instability was given to one hundred and sixty-eight students of arts and medicine. As measured by this test, the women students are more unstable that the men, and the arts students more unstable than the medical students. On the whole, students are more unstable than the average of the general population. There is no significant or unequivocal correlation between instability, emotionality, or idiosyncrasy as measured by the Woodworth, Pressey, or Kent-Rosanoff tests and academic standing.
