Personality Correlates of Accurate Empathy in a College Companion Program
Vesprani, George J.
J Consult Clin Psychol, 33, 6, 722-727, 69 Dec
Interactions of 33 untrained female students with hospital patients were recorded, sampled, and rated using the Truax Accurate Empathy Scale (AE). AE ratings were correlated with student personality measures from the EPPS and MMPI. Depression and Psychasthenia scales of the MMPI were negatively and significantly correlated with AE ratings. Changes in AE over time and methodological pitfalls are discussed. Reprints available from author at Hamilton County Diagnostic Clinics, 295 Erkenbrecker Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45229. (Author)
