ECHO: A Computer Based Test for the Measurement of Individualistic, Cooperative, Defensive, and Aggressive Models of Behavior. Occasional Paper No. 30.
Krus, David J.; And Others
This paper describes a test which attempts to measure a group of personality traits by analyzing the actual behavior of the participant in a computer-simulated game. ECHO evolved from an extension and computerization of Horstein and Deutsch's allocation game. The computerized version of ECHO requires subjects to make decisions about the allocation of monetary units into four interest areas. Four primary scores are obtained which are indicative of the intensities of behavior in the independence, cooperation, defensiveness and aggression regions. Their magnitudes are determined by the mean amounts of money allocated by the subjects to these respective areas. Test utility and applicability is discussed. (Author/PC)
