Abstract:

Data on the Michill Adjective Rating Scale (MARS) were collected from 413 persons in the United States and 353 persons in Pakistan. The Americans were given the English version and the Pakistanis, the Urdu version of the MARS on which each person rated self and several significant others. The Pearson rs among the 48 MARS items were computed separately for the ratings of self, father, mother, worst teacher, and Mao Tsetung for subjects classified into 10 groups on the basis of their culture, sex, and educational level. The r matrices were analyzed to extract four factors for each of the 10 groups and for each of the five types of ratings by means of the principal axis method. Tucker's coefficients of congruence were computed for each of the 10 groups and for each of the five ratings. Comparison of the coefficients of congruence for the various pairings indicated a reasonable degree of generality in most cases.
