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.

Background: 

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

Psychometrics: 

A description of the development and psychometrics of the CSIE can be found in Lock and Sadler (2007).
