Workplace Arrogance Scale (WARS)

 


Scale name: Workplace Arrogance Scale (WARS)

Scale overview: The 26-item Workplace Arrogance Scale measures arrogance in the workplace based on self-report using a 5-point rating scale.

Authors: Russell E. Johnson of Michigan State University and others—see the article reference for the author list.

Response Type: A 5-point Likert type rating scale from 1 = strongly disagree to 5 = strongly agree

Sample items:

1. Believes that s/he knows better than everyone else in any given situation

2. Makes decisions that impact others without listening to their input

Reliability: The 26-item WARS alpha was .93 in Johnson et al., 2010.

Validity Factor analysis indicated a one-factor scale. Arrogance was positively correlated with dominance, anger, superiority, entitlement, and vanity.

Arrogance was negatively correlated with humility, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and self-sufficiency. Arrogance was not related to authority.

Availability: See Table A1 on page 427 of the 2010 article for the 26 items.
