of people who will be in a position to show leadership ability, as this is the characteristic being measured. 7. A control group will also exist. I. Inherent
problems in models constructed in this manner 1. They will all become mathematical equations in basis. 2. The equations are so complex they can only be performed by a
complex and involved computer programme designed specifically to the task. 3. The results can be interpreted in many ways. 4. Groth-Marnat has narrowed it down to only two factors which
