Abstract : In this paper, we identify domain-specific measures of individual differences in feedback propensities. In a series of studies, we identify the primary dimensions, psychometric characteristics, and construct validation evidence for internal ability, internal propensity, and external propensity for feedback. Confirmatory factor analysis supports the three-dimensional representation. Correlations between the new scales and existing differences of personality are consistent with theoretical predictions. Research that has used the new scales to predict feedback-related behavior and performance is described. Theoretical and practical extensions of the current work are discussed. (AN)
