A set of German language scales constructed to measure a person's experience of the nonhuman environment (ENU) was correlated with a German language personality inventory (FIT) describing experiences of the human environment (Self and Others). Previous correlational studies between tests measuring attitudes toward the nonhuman environment and tests describing the relationships to the human environment had indicated that, the tendency to retreat from the human environment in neurosis and depression was paralleled by a tendency to retreat also from the nonhuman environment.. This tendency was confirmed by high multiple correladons (.42. p=.OO1) between ENU and the FPI scales measuring neurotLcist and depressivity.
