Willingness To Collaborate as a New Communication Trait: Scale Development and a Predictive Model of Related Communication Traits.
Anderson, Carolyn M.; And Others
A study created and examined a new communication trait--the willingness to collaborate. The Willingness to Collaborate Trait Scale was created. Scale reliability was demonstrated through analysis of internal consistency of the 13-item scale. A communication trait model predictive of trait willingness to collaborate was tested using 401 questionnaires completed by 201 communication students (each of whom recruited one other respondent) at a midwestern state university. A positive relationship was found for five communication traits: argumentativeness, interpersonal communication competency, attentiveness, willingness to communicate, and a relaxed style. A negative relationship was found for verbal aggressiveness. (Three tables of data are included; 61 references are attached.) (RS)
