Abstract : The report develops a theoretical framework for the comparison of factor structures in personality assessment for the case of nonoverlapping samples of entities. Data are collected on three groups of subjects, each group performing under a different set of instructions. The data are analyzed using a simplex-free and a simplex-confounded statistic. There is evidence that scalable aspects of the instructions can predict the effect of the instructions on the factor structures obtained under those instructions. The simplex-free statistic reveals instructions effects differently and is less reliable than the simplex-confounded statistic. (Author)
