Primary use / Purpose:
The Circumplex Scales of Interpersonal Efficacy (CSIE) is a self-report measure of confidence that one can engage in variety of agentic and communal interpersonal behaviors associated with each octant of the interpersonal circumplex.
The Circumplex Scales of Interpersonal Efficacy (CSIE) is a 32-item inventory designed to complement existing interpersonal circumplex measures by efficiently assessing confidence that one can engage in variety of interpersonal behaviors. The eight 4-item scales of the CSIE appear to have a circumplex structure, adequate internal reliability, and convergent validity with measures of interpersonal values and interpersonal problems
A description of the development and psychometrics of the CSIE can be found in Lock and Sadler (2007).
