Lee's Typology of Love Styles: A Confirmatory Factor Analysis of the Hendrick-Hendrick Measure with Implications for Counseling.
Thompson, Bruce; And Others
Love is among the most fundamental aspects of the experience of being human, but measures of perceptions of the experience of love have only recently been explored. One of the most popular measures was developed by C. Hendrick and S. Hendrick. Most previous studies of the measure have used exploratory factor analysis and orthogonal factor rotation. In the present study, confirmatory factor analytic methods were conducted using the LISREL program. Results with 185 undergraduate and graduate students (69.2 percent female, and 83.2 percent non-minority) support a view that a more appropriate model might be a "G," or General factor theory, and a model in which love styles are correlated. Two tables present tests of model fit and items sorted by factor loading. Appendixes contain the variance-covariance matrix, LISREL maximum likelihood estimates and matrices, and modification indices for the factor matrix. (Contains 33 references.) (SLD)
