Abstract

A self-report battery for the assessment of hand, eye, foot and ear preference, which has been validated against behavioral tasks designed to measure the same four types of laterality, is presented. Data showing the concordance between the inventory and the behavioral tests for a sample of 171 individuals is given. The mean degree of concordance between the behavioral and the questionnaire items was 90%. Additional analyses revealed that both forms of measurement provide similar descriptions of both individual and population lateral preference patterns. This report offers the questionnaire battery as a convenient and useful tool for the measurement of the four most common indices of laterality.
