Five-Factor LAMBI Scale of God Representations

 

Scale name:  Five-Factor LAMBI Scale of God Representations

Scale overview

A 25-item scale that measures how people view God. The five letters in LAMBI reflect the five dimensions based on factors identified by statistical analyses. Participants rate each one-word item based on their belief about or experience with God rather than what may be considered a correct belief.

Authors:

Johnson, Kathryn A., Okun, Morris A., Cohen, Adam B., Sharp, Carissa A., & Hook, Joshua N.

Response Type

A likert-type scale with a 7-point rating from Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree

Subscales and sample items

The five subscales are called dimensions. Following each dimension is one of the words participants rate. See the reference to obtain the full scale.

L = Limitless e.g., infinite

A = Authoritarian e.g., strict

M = Mystical e.g., nature

B = Benevolent e.g., gracious

I = Ineffable: e.g.,

Also, 3 items assess views of “No God” that is, Nonexistent, imaginary, and nor real.

Reliability and Validity

The researchers reported results of factor analysis in their article cited below. They reported means, standard deviations, and strong alpha levels for the subscales (e.g., see Study 5 on page 346).

Rotterdam Emotional Intelligence Scale (REIS)


 

Scale name: Rotterdam Emotional Intelligence Scale (REIS)

Scales overview: The Rotterdam Emotional Intelligence Scale (REIS) is a 28-item measure of emotional intelligence having four subscales.

Authors: Pekaar, Keri A., Bakker, Arnold B., van der Linden, Dimitri, & Born, Marise Ph.

Response Type: All items are rated on a 5-point Likert type scale ranging from 1 (totally disagree to 5 (totally agree).

Subscales = 4

  Following are the four subscales with a sample item.

Self-focused emotion appraisal(1. I always know how I feel.)

Other-focused emotion appraisal (8. I am aware of the emotions of the people around me.)

Self-focused emotion regulation (15. I am in control of my own emotions.)

Other-focused emotion regulation (22. I can make someone else feel differently.)

 

Reliability and Validity

“The results indicate that the REIS follows a four-factorial structure and can be reliably measured with 28 items. The REIS was strongly correlated with other self-reported EI instruments and weakly to moderately correlated with an ability EI test, cognitive intelligence, and personality.” (Pekar  et al., Abstract).

Availability:

The full list of 28-items is available on page 2 of the PsycTESTS document.

Permissions -- if identified

According to PsycTESTS:
