Extremeness, Flexibility, and Indifference Response Sets: A Cross-Cultural Study.
Khalil, Elham A.
A Personal Friends Check List (PFCL) and the NEO Personality Inventory Revised (NEO PI-R) were administrated to samples from 3 nations: Egyptian subjects (n=141; 30 males and 111 females, ages 18-24), Saudi Arabian subjects (n=125; only female subjects ages 18-25); and American subjects (n=108, 30 males and 87 females ages 18 -27). It was assumed that the three nation-samples would differ in their performance on the PFCL which has several components: general, positive and negative extremeness; general, positive and negative flexibility; and indifference response sets. By using stepwise regression, the results showed that cultural background is a good means by which to predict response sets. By using Pearson's correlations, results showed that the cultural background formulates the relationships between personality traits and response sets. (Contains 3 tables and 17 references.) (JDM)
