Abstract

"Eysenck's short neuroticism and extraversion scales were used in interviews with 180 American housewives. The scales proved to be uncorrelated with each other, even though both were significantly correlated with a measure of agreeing response set. The reliability of the neuroticism scale was .72; and of the extraversion scale, .41. Some differences between the present results and Eysenck's results were discussed."
