Concurrent Validity of Scores from the Hendrick-Hendrick "Love Attitudes Scale": Predicting Score Variance Using Androgyny Sex-Roles Data.
Gillaspy, Art; And Others
Love is among the most fundamental aspects of the experience of being human. Achieving successful love relationships has been associated by counselors--both counseling theories and researchers--with good mental and good physical health. Yet our knowledge of the nature of love remains primitive, because until recently it was not considered scientifically respectable to investigate love phenomena. The present study explored the nature of perceptions of love in relation to sex-role preferences measured by the Bem Sex-Role Inventory. The concurrent validity of scores on the Hendrick-Hendrick Love Attitudes Scale was investigated. Subjects were 791 graduate and undergraduate university students. Various bivariate and multivariate methods were used to explore these relationships. Results for the various subscales provide insight into the nature and dynamics of love. Four tables. Two appendixes list analysis eigenvalues and the instrument's varimax-rotated structure. (Contains 39 references.) (SLD)
