In Study I responses to the 60 BSRI items from
580 college students were factor analyzed. Four factors
were rotated to the Varimax criterion and labeled
Emotional Expressiveness, Instrumental Activity,
Sex of Subject, and Social Immaturity. These
factors were virtually identical to those found
earlier by Gaudreau (1977). In Study II, another
sample of 600 college students was employed to
compare the internal consistency of the three BSRI
original scales with that of the four factor scales derived
from Study I. Even with their shorter length,
the factor scales were more internally consistent
than those originally constructed by Bem. Some
logical problems in the labeling of the scales in the
BSRI are discussed.
