Abstract:Currently there are no publications of the usage of Parafac2 in the psychological literature. This thesis demonstrates the use of the Parafac2 model using multiple personality data published by Osgood & Luria (1954), just as Kroonenberg (1985) demonstrated the use of the Tucker3 model. In addition, the Parafac2 solution will be compared with Kroonenberg's Tucker3 solution. It is shown that with minimal loss of overall fit, the Parafac2 model yields an easier interpretation than the Tucker3. Furthermore, this thesis shows that the Parafac2 model can be a useful tool for the analysis of semantic differential data, in general.
