DIMENSIONS OF RESPONSE CONSISTENCY IN PAIRED COMPARISONS
PRINCETON UNIV N J
THE STRUCTURE OF INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES IN SELFINCONSISTENCY WAS EXPLORED USING AS THE BASIC MEASURE OF INCONSISTENCY THE NUMBER OF CIRCULAR TRIADS MADE IN CHOOSING BETWEEN STIMULUS PAIRS PRESENTED IN PAIRED COMPARISON SCHEDULES. Twelve paired comparison schedules were constructed-six called for judgments of similarity, six for judgments of preference. Three different kinds of stimuli were used in the schedules--colors, verbal material, and designs or figures. It was hypothesized that factor analyses of circular triad scores obtained for the 12 schedules would yield a general inconsistency factor and, possibly, additional factors reflecting the types of judgment and the kinds of stimuli involved.
