Abstract:

A series of studies were undertaken in order to begin the establishment of construct validity for the Repression-Sensitization Scale. It was found that the R-S Scale is negatively correlated with Ullmanns Facilitation-Inhibition Scale positively correlated with Worchels Self Activity Inventory negatively correlated with the California F Scale positively related to the expression of sexual responses on the TAT for male Ss only and unrelated to the expression of aggression and emotionality for either sex positively correlated with deviant response bias on an Adjective Check List and unrelated to measures of intellectual ability. Thus, with minor exceptions the findings confirmed the general hypothesis that the R-S Scale is a measure of defensive behavior.
