Abstract

Abstract The positive and the negative items of nine factor scales of the Comrey Personality Scales (eight trait scales, and one of the validity scales measuring social desirability) were scored separately, for a sample of about 600 female subjects, and the 18 scales were factor analyzed, employing Lisrel. The model that was used, hypothesized ten factors—one common factor for each pair of scales, and one general factor, measuring acquiescence. The Lisrel solution for this model gave an adequate fit to the data.
