GIAVONI, Adriana  and  TAMAYO, Álvaro. Spatials analysis: concept, method and applicability. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2003, vol.16, n.2, pp.303-307. ISSN 0102-7972.

The purpose of this article was to introduce a new analysis - the spatial analysis. Based on mathematical concepts inserted in factor analysis, this kind of analysis spatially represents and evaluates a study subject. Using the dimension and vector base concepts, the masculine scheme that composes the Self Concept Gender Schemas Inventory (IEGA) was spatially represented and evaluated. Because this scheme is tridimensional, it could be graphically represented. Above three dimensions, only the algebric analysis could be done. The spatial analysis allows to integrate all dimensions that perform a study subject in a whole; evaluate a study subject from the new perspective - the spatial variables and evaluate a hierarchical structure. For the full evaluation of the subject, the spatial analysis should be carried out with another analysis, such as total and partial analysis.

Keywords : Gender squemas; spatial structure.
