Abstract : Several characteristics of Fiedler's LPC scales were investigated. It was found that although the LPC scales reflect two evaluative dimensions, there is a general negative evaluative component common to both dimensions. When asked to evaluate someone they had known, approximately two-thirds of the respondents rated a real person while the other third rated a stereotype when describing their least preferred co-worker. LPC and its subfactors were found to be substantially unrelated to a large number of personality measures. Theoretical and methodological problems inherent in a bidimensional interpretation of a univariate score were discussed, and an alternative unidimensional approach was suggested. (Author)
