THE SPECIFICITY OF MOTOR ABILITIES
Fleishman, E. A. (1958). An analysis of positioning movements and static reactions. Journal of Experimental Psychology, 55, 213-246.

The low correlations between the factors established the basis for the study of specificity in motor ability. Abilities were found to be specific in nature, non-transferable, and task-specific related.
