Guide to Factor-Referenced Temperament Scales, 1978.
Dermen, Diran; And Others
This guide provides research workers with a means of identifying certain self-report temperament factors in factor analytic studies. It is intended to promote interpretation and comparison of one factor study with another. The body of the guide is organized in 28 sections, one for each factor, followed by the reference section and an appendix listing the published instruments containing recommended marker scales. At the top of each section the factor name, its symbol, and the descriptions of its subfactors or item categories are given, usually stated in bipolar terms. The literature supporting the factor is discussed, as are the results of the authors' studies attempting to confirm the factor. Where the newly constucted marker scales succeeded in marking the given factor, the individual items are presented. Where published scales are judged appropriate as markers for the factor, the names of the scales and the inventories containing them are given. (Author/CTM)
