Comparing these results with all similar correlations, we 
find that none of the subjects have remained constant during 
the experiments, as is evidenced by the following. A.’s longest 
tappings were twice for the pleasant, twice for the unpleasant and 
twice for the neutral. B.’s were three times for the pleasant, 
twice for the unpleasant, and once for the neutral, etc. The 
whole list is given below.

(this subject did not begin with the others) 
(only one kind of judgment was made in one series) 
(only one kind of judgment was made in one series) 
(this subject did not begin with the others, and in 
one series made only one kind of judgments) 
Comparing the M.V. and the Rnj. in a similar manner gives 
equally varied results. 
Let us now consider the graphs for these experiments. Their 
resemblances were more striking than their differences, and it is 
not unlikely that the reverberations set up in the motor con¬ 
sciousness just by this new material were too strong to be altered 
by the other factors involved. In the first place it was found 
that these experiments produced a much lower motor output than 
did those preceding them ; Idrel had reached a height of 88.4 mm. ; 
none of these reach anything above 78.8 mm. (the Arnold II). 
Massing together the P, U, and N judgments, and correlating 
them with the amounts of motor discharge as shown by these 
graphs, we obtain: 
PUN 
Arnold II.............................M.D. av. 78.8 mm. 342 
Tennyson 1........................... 78.6 7 1 1 
Byron II.............................. 78.4 801 
Tennyson II.......................... 78.0 441 
Arnold 1.............................. 77-6 441 
Byron 1.............................. 774 5 4 ° 
Keats II.............................. 77-2 7 1 1 
Keats 1............................... 76.6 7 i i 
This comparison would seem to indicate that the most pleasant 
experiments go with the strongest and the weakest tappings,
