Pressure to obey in child-rearing is positively related to a series of variables in art complexity (216, 219).


When all 11 art complexity variables are considered, the relationship to pressure to obey is weak. When only "complexity of design" is considered and tested against 92 child-rearing variables, 56 relationships were found to be positive; this is significantly more than expected by chance (chi square = 4.35, p < .05).
