A New Self-Report Measure of Impulsivity by Joseph E Grush( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new self-report measure of impulsivity was developed to provide group administration and economy of scoring. An initial set of 26 items was constructed to tap various aspects of impulsivity, or the tendency to respond quickly without thinking. The items were administered to 346 male undergraduate students, primarily freshmen and sophomores. Item analysis indicated that 18 of the items could be legitimately combined into a single scale. Reliability (coefficient alpha) was .68. Results of a cross-validation study of 363 similar subjects showed that the 18 items had stable trace lines and a coefficient alpha of .67. Mean scores, standard deviations, and standard error of measurement were also virtually identical for the two samples of respondents. It was concluded that the new Impulsivity Scale had sufficient psychometric properties and practical advantages to warrant its use in educational and research settings. Moderate, rather than high, reliability may have been due to the four-point response scale, or the fact that impulsivity is a multidimensional rather than a unidimenstional construct. (The 18-item Impulsivity Scale is appended.) (Author/GDC)

Attitude Formation, Novel Stimuli, and Exposure Effects by Joseph E Grush( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten Turkish words were used as stimuli in an exposure experiment. Twenty-five students from the University of Illinois subject pool were divided into five subgroups, differing only with respect to which stimuli occurred in which exposure conditions. After the stimuli were evaluated on 7-point "good-bad" scales, subjects completed a questionnaire which assessed variables connected with the various explanations of the mere exposure effect. The results showed that exposure increased the positive evaluations of the Turkish words and the summed positive evaluations of their associations. These parallel findings supported an attitude formation process which used Fishbein's attitude model to relate the evaluations of stimuli to the evaluations of their associations. Four other explanations of exposure effects were also tested, but their predictions were not confirmed. (Mkm)
