Components underlying performance on field-dependence measures were examined. On the basis of these components and of the relationships between field-dependence measures and intelligence tests, it was suggested that field-dependence measures form 2 somewhat distinct clusters: embedded-figures and adjustment tests. It was noted that embedded-figures tests are related to intelligence, whereas adjustment tests are independent of intelligence. It was recommended that comprehensive rather than limited studies be conducted with an emphasis on the application of multivariate techniques to the understanding of the field-dependence dimension and especially in the study of its developmental and cross-cultural aspects.
