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).
