Effects of Stem and Likert Response Option Reversals on Survey Internal Consistency: If You Feel the Need, There Is a Better Alternative to Using Those Negatively Worded Stems.
Barnette, J. Jackson
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v60 n3 p361-70 Jun 2000

Results from high school and college students and teachers (150 individuals per test form) suggest using directly worded items with half of the response items going in one direction, and half in the other.
