This scale attempts to measure agreeing response set as a personality variable, particularly the inner dynamics of this agreeing personality syndrome. All items were answered in Likert response format, running from strongly agree (7) to strongly disagree (1). The Overall Agreement Score (OAS) consists of the average response to 360 items of the original instrument. For these items, the mean was 3.9 and the standard deviation 0.3. The 15 items in the ARS were those that correlated highest with the overall 360-item scale. These are considered by the authors as 'the best short scale measure of the agreeing response tendency.' The agreement response scale was found to correlate with several personality characteristics, but most particularly with impulsivity, dependence, anxiety, mania, anal preoccupation and anal resentment. Moreover it correlated negatively with scales measuring the opposite tendencies (such as impulse control, ego strength as well as stability, responsibility, and tolerance. A factor analysis indicated that a major factor of stimulus acceptance (vs. stimulus rejection) was central to the agreeing response set. Scoring: Items are summed for the total score=ART. ART=SUMMARY AGREEMENT RESPONSE TENDENCY (RANGE 15-105)
