Quantitative Measurement of Sociometric Relationships through Multidimensional Scaling.
Hollweg, C. Lewis; And Others
An analysis of group social relationships through an interpersonal perception point of view is presented. Each member of a group is asked to make a judgment concerning the social distance between each pair of members in the group. The Carroll and Chang scaling model, called Individual Differences Scaling (INDSCAL), which assumes that individuals use similar dimensions in making distance judgments between stimuli, but that individuals may differentially weight these dimensions in making their judgments, was applied. Data were collected from a group of 8 fraternity men who had volunteered for sensitivity training. At the second meeting hour of the training group, each group member was asked to fill out a Cattell 16 P.F. personality inventory and a FIRO-B Interpersonal Inventory, and to make four unidimensional forced rankings of all group members on: degree of openness, degree of empathy, degree of trust, and degree of gregariousness. The pair comparison judgments of social distance were analyzed by the INDSCAL computer program. Results are given in tabular form. (CK)
