Another purpose for this research was to determine the construct validity of the FLSD. Participants completing it showed the emotional relationships between the owners and humans and dogs indicated on the diagrams that were displayed by relationship descriptors.
Further work with the FLSD focused on child abuse survivors, using a retrospective approach.

For the second search dimension, a second pseudo variable X2 (ranging from 1 to + 1) was developed that jointly shifted cultivar internal life cycle coefficients (FLSH, FLSD, SDPM, SFDUR, and PODUR) that affected seed yield by starting pod and seed growth sooner or later within the previously fixed time from anthesis to maturity (Table 1).
The time intervals FLSD and SDPM, on the other hand, were somewhat smaller than typical generic MG values (Tables 4 and 5).
These results suggest that less confidence should be placed on the repeatability of the solved cultivar traits that affect seed yield (X1 and X2) compared with the cultivar traits that control the individual phases of the life cycle (FLSD and SDPM) and the CSDL.
To attain high yield, the high yielding cultivars should be characterized by high values for X1 (LFMAX and THRESH) or high values for X2 (FLSH, FLSD, SDPM, SFDUR, and PODUR) or moderately high values for both.
where [FLSD.sub.opt] is the optimized value of FLSD and the ratio of [(FLSH/FLSD).sub.MG] is the ratio of the general maturity group values for the specific coefficients.
For the second search dimension, we developed a second pseudo variable X2 (-1 to +1) that jointly shifted cultivar "life cycle" coefficients (FLSH, FLSD, SDPM, SFDUR, and PODUR) that affected grain yield by starting pod and seed growth sooner or later within the previously fixed time from anthesis to maturity (Table 1).
