A Factor Analytic Study of Social Competence in Women
Abstract:In an attempt to uncover the dimensions of heterosocial competence in college women, two independent samples of subjects (n1 = 149, n2 = 120) were given 14 questionnaires designed to measure selected aspects of social competence. Scores on these instruments were factor analyzed using both maximum likelihood and Kaiser's Little filly solutions. Loadings obtained from both samples suggested three major dimensions: heterosexual anxiety, social self-esteem, and dating activity. Oblique rotation indicated that the factors were highly interrelated.
