A cross cultural check of the personality structure of the 16PF
Zak, I. (1976). A cross cultural check of the personality structure of the 16PF. Multivariate Experimental Clinical Research, 2(3), 123-127.
The contention that transferability of a scale across cultures is best achieved when the scale has low homogeneity was tested using Cattell's 16PF personality questionnaire. The 16PF was administered to a random sample of 514 university applicants in Israel. The data yielded essentially the same psychometric properties as found in the original American samples. The problem of homogeneity is further discussed in relation to validity coefficients.
