Abstract

The present study examined the reliability of the scores of the California Psychological Inventory (CPI). The reported reliability coefficients were located via PsycInfo and recorded into a data set. A multiple regression analysis was performed on the coefficients for the Socialization scale as well as on the three factors of the CPI. No predictors were found to be significant. The test retest reliabilities were significantly higher than the internal consistency reliabilities across all scale factors. A lack of significant results may be explained by the fact that the CPI is a multi-subscale instrument and not all of the scales are widely used to provide enough reliability coefficients in the literature.
