Transituational consistency as a dimension of personality

Transituational consistency as a dimension of personality Studied the moderator effect of consistency in correlating different measures of the same construct and investigated the personality correlates of consistency with 191 college students as Ss. Consistency was measured by the stability of need ratings across 16 TAT cards. Ss were also given the Institute for Personality and Ability Testing Anxiety Scale Questionnaire and measures of extraversion and field independence. Results indicate reliable variation on the consistency dimension. The number of cases in which consistency acted as a moderator was considerably above chance. Consistency had low but significant relationships with anxiety (negative) and extraversion (positive). Positive relationships were found with a need factor involving mastery over the environment and with another involving conformity and submissiveness, while a negative relationship was found for a factor related to overt hostility and hostility turned inward.

Abstract

Studied the moderator effect of consistency in correlating different measures of the same construct and investigated the personality correlates of consistency with 191 college students as Ss. Consistency was measured by the stability of need ratings across 16 TAT cards. Ss were also given the Institute for Personality and Ability Testing Anxiety Scale Questionnaire and measures of extraversion and field independence. Results indicate reliable variation on the consistency dimension. The number of cases in which consistency acted as a moderator was considerably above chance. Consistency had low but significant relationships with anxiety (negative) and extraversion (positive). Positive relationships were found with a need factor involving mastery over the environment and with another involving conformity and submissiveness, while a negative relationship was found for a factor related to overt hostility and hostility turned inward.
