FACTOR ANALYSIS OF THE STEWART PERSONALITY INVENTORY RESEARCH FORM AND ITS CORRELATIONS WITH SOME OTHER PERSONALITY INSTRUMENTS
Abstract:The 80-item Stewart Personality Inventory (SPI) has 8 sub-scales; Orderliness, Future orientation, Extraversion, Self-concept, Autonomy, Risk-taking, Nurturance and Scientific practicality. The inventory and scoring methods are summarised. A factor analysis yielded a very similar factor structure to that of an earlier study, despite different factor methods and cultural settings for the studies. Presented also are correlations of the SPI sub-scales with the Bell Home Adjustment Scale, California Psychological Inventory, Eysenck Personality Inventory, Machiavellianism Scale, Wrightsman Philosophies of Human Nature Scale, Rubin and Peplau “Just World” scale and the Wilson-Patterson Conservatism Scale. The results are generally supportive of the Inventory's validity.
