Forced Choice F Scale (Berkowitz and Wolkon 1964) Form II (Forced Choice Christie) The Forced Choice F Scale was designed to measure authoritarianism as defined by the California study (Adorno et al, 1950) while avoiding two problems accounted with previous scales: 1) acquiescence response set and 2) inadequate counterbalancing which yields unreliability and perhaps multidimensionality. Form II (FCC) used 25 items appearing in the original F Scale paired with Christie's reversals. Each pair c onstitutes an item. The items appear in random order. For 13 randomly chosen items, the original statement from the F Scale preceded its reversal, while in the other 12 items, the reversal came first. The forced choice technique appears to be one of the best solutions to the problem of agreement set. This scale correlates highly with F+ and F- subscales of balanced forms, although these subscales usually do not correlate highly with each other. See codebook for additional information
