Abstract/Summary

This current research intended to validate the utility of human figure drawing as an assessment tool for identifying individuals who have higher tendency towards impulsivity and hostility among selected Filipino Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) drivers. Through the Sign Approach Method pioneered by Machover (1949), several specific indicators from the drawings of 100 PUV drivers based in Metro Manila were analyzed in order to find significant signs that are indicators of impulsivity and hostility traits. Results showed that there is one specific indicator appeared significant in relation to impulsivity and this is the presence of unequal arms in the drawing. Meanwhile, there are two significant indicators transpired in relation to hostility trait such as illustration of nostrils in the figure and human drawing with big hands in the figure. These specific indicators were validated through a Point-biserial correlation towards personality traits such as impulsivity and hostility of PUV drivers. The results of this research served as another support for studies conveying that HFD is capable to be an assessment tool for different groups of adults like PUV drivers. Implications of findings and directions for further research are discussed.
