Abstract: Throughout this article, $ \kappa $ denotes an arbitrary infinite cardinal number. In 1979, A. A. Gryzlov strengthened a well-known result of A. V. Arhangel'skii by proving that every compact $ {T_1}$-space of pseudocharacter $ \kappa $ has cardinality $ \leqslant {2^\kappa }$. Using techniques similar to Gryzlov's, we prove that every $ {2^\kappa }$-total, $ {T_1}$-space of pseudocharacter $ \leqslant \kappa $ is compact and hence of cardinality $ \leqslant {2^\kappa }$. Some related results and examples are given.
