To achieve the above-stated research objective regarding a possible curvilinearity of relationships, the relationships between the four ACAP dimensions and performance measures are analyzed by means of both linear and non-linear regressions.

Furthermore, in an external particle based model for gravity, there is no need to invoke a purely mathematical "fabric" to space-time curvilinearity according to geodesics or warping, nor is it necessary to invoke Riemanian space, nor Minkowski space, but instead space-time is considered to be of a fractal geometry, and the trajectory of mass particles and photons through space is curved because of collisions with neutrinos (WIMPS).
Model-3 includes all the four squared terms to test the possibility of curvilinearity. The coefficients of both conceptualization learning and conceptualization learning squared are insignificant suggesting that conceptual learning has no relationship with the value of innovation.
This model was chosen because of the obvious curvilinearity of the relationship.

Also, if there are ceiling effects in the criteria, we might expect to see curvilinearity for both personality and cognitive ability test scores in predicting training performance.
Relationships were checked for possible curvilinearity by inspecting scatterplots using lowess smooth (a nonparametric procedure that reflects departures from linearity) (Cleveland, 1993).
