It was found that the Discus instrument is reliable at a significance level = 0.01.
In the validity exercise it was found that the majority of the factors of the 16-PF show a significant correlation with all four dimensions of the Discus using the p-values. The second order factors of the 16-PF were not used for the purpose of this study.
Suelz (1997) is currently busy with a validation study on the Discus using respondents from the Edgars group in Gauteng as his sample size. He has not yet published his masters thesis. It would be interesting to compare the findings of his research with the findings in this study.
