An inventory for assessing different kinds of hostility

An inventory for assessing different kinds of hostility "This paper described the construction of an inventory consisting of the following scales: Assault, Indirect Hostility, Irritability, Negativism, Resentment, Suspicion, Verbal Hostility, and Guilt. The first and second versions of the scale were item analyzed, and the final revision consists of 75 items. The hostility items were scaled for social desirability, and social desirability was correlated with probability of endorsement. The r's of .27 and .30 for college men and women, respectively, were considerably smaller than those of previous studies. Factor analyses of college men's and women's inventories revealed two factors: An attitudinal component of hostility (Resentment and Suspicion) and a "motor' component (Assault, Indirect Hostility, Irritability, and Verbal Hostility)." http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology American Psychological Association

Abstract

"This paper described the construction of an inventory consisting of the following scales: Assault, Indirect Hostility, Irritability, Negativism, Resentment, Suspicion, Verbal Hostility, and Guilt. The first and second versions of the scale were item analyzed, and the final revision consists of 75 items. The hostility items were scaled for social desirability, and social desirability was correlated with probability of endorsement. The r's of .27 and .30 for college men and women, respectively, were considerably smaller than those of previous studies. Factor analyses of college men's and women's inventories revealed two factors: An attitudinal component of hostility (Resentment and Suspicion) and a "motor' component (Assault, Indirect Hostility, Irritability, and Verbal Hostility)."
