Abstract

This submission contains data and codebooks from several personality studies conducted 1990-2017, organized by assessment instrument. For demographic information about the study participants, please refer to Background Information Questionnaire (BIQ) - Personality Studies (http://d-scholarship.pitt.edu/id/eprint/35424).

Studies:

1. Interpersonal Functioning in Borderline Personality ("Interpersonal Functioning") - Significant Other Data available as informant
2. Interpersonal Functioning and Emotion in Borderline Personality ("Emotion and Interpersonal Functioning")

Description: The Adult Temperament Questionnaire (ATQ) was adapted from the Physiological Reactions Questionnaire developed by Derryberry and Rothbart (1988). It is a self-report model of temperament that includes the broad domains of affiliativeness, effortful control, aggressive negative affect, non-aggressive negative affect, extraversion/surgency, and orienting sensitivity. The general constructs are referred to as factor scales (i.e., they have resulted in superfactors) and the sub-constructs are referred to as scales. The ATQ long form includes 177 items and the short form 77 items. Both forms include the same constructs.

Data Notes: Personality Studies only used the Effortful Control domain, which included the Activation Control (the capacity to perform an action when there is a strong tendency to avoid it), Effortful Attention (the capacity to focus attention as well as to shift attention when desired, including attentional shifting from punishment and from reward), and Inhibitory Control (the capacity to inhibit inappropriate behavior) scales, totaling 35 items.

Reliability: From Evans & Rothbart (2002): “…reliabilities as assessed by coefficient α for 13 of 18 of the temperament scales reached a level of .80 or higher, and only one scale was lower than .70 (inhibitory control at .66).”
