Three of Rokeach's (1960) propositions regarding the effects of dogmatism on cognitive differentiation and cognitive isolation are examined. Two of these propositions were previously tested by Feather (1969), who reported negative findings; the third proportion, to our knowledge, has not been previously evaluated. Fundamental criticisms of Feather's operational interpretation of key concepts are offered, and alterations in measurement procedures are developed to correct deficiencies. In general, the data provide consistent and strong support for each of the research hypotheses.
