Extension Disposition: Behavioural Inventory*
23.1 The Instrument and its Administration
Behavioural Inventory is a self-checking instrument to measure extension disposition (D Ext), that is, a respondent's tendency to show extension behaviour. The respondent checks 10 items, which measure the frequency of his behaviour on a 5-point scale.
23.2 Conceptual Framework
The concept of extension motivation is discussed in Section 4.2.
Reverse scores on items 9 and 10 (1 = 5, 2 = 4, 3 = 3, 4 = 2, 5 = 1), then add all the scores. The total scores will range from 10 to 50.
Pareek and Dixit (1976) found a significant correlation of 0.52 between D Extension and Cooperative Disposition (D Coop.) as measured in the game behaviour.
