DEVELOPMENT OF THE AGENCY AND COMMUNION SCALE
Abstract:Based on the concepts of agency and communion set forth by Bakan (1966), this study includes two substudies to develop the agency and communion scale. Study 1 develops the scale through two groups of samples: one group was composed of 116 university college students and the other consisted of 118 technical college students. For further validation, in study 2 the agency and communion scale, self-esteem scale and interpersonal quality scale were completed by 190 students. The agency and communion scale covering 16 items was developed at last and this scale had reliable cross-sample analysis and good construct validity. This scale can be used to assess the basic components of the personality. The basic components of the personality will need further exploration and advanced studies in the future.
