The Legal Traits Test, which was administered to a group of entering law school students, asked each student to decide whether he would rather have more of one trait at the expense of having less of another trait. Twenty-one traits (by name) were presented in all possible pairs. The intercovariances among trait scores were factor analyzed on the basis of a double-centered matrix to nine factors. Axes were rotated to simple structure (within translation of the origin) and seven of the factors were interpreted. Mean preferences among the traits indicated that intellective qualities are most highly valued by these students.
