Abstract

The focus of this study is the development and construct validation of the Attitudinal and Behavioral Openness Scale (ABOS). This scale measures the personality construct of openness with behavioral and attitudinal indicators. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses suggest multiple dimensions of the Attitudinal and Behavioral Openness Scale: Participation in Cultural Activities, Foreign Experiences, Openness Attitudes, and Comfort with Differences. Additional analyses establish a nomological network for this construct by demonstrating convergence between the ABOS and theoretically linked sociopolitical constructs, attitudinal and personality constructs, in particular a self-rated adjective measure of openness.
