Abstract

Two samples--of 200 women tested in their homes and of 85 women attending a general practice--completed the Hostility and Direction of Hostility Questionnaire (HDHQ). The scores of the two samples on General Hostility and on the five subscales--AH, CO, PH, G and SC--were similar to one another but were significantly higher, indicating greater hostility, than those of the normative samples reported in the HDHQ Manual. These and previous findings cast doubt on the value of the Manual norms.
