The New Questionnaire “Types of Response to a Changing Situation”: The Structure of Scales and Psychometric Characteristics

2021. Vol. 18. No. 2. P. 297–316 [issue contents]

The article presents the results of the psychometric analysis of the new questionnaire “Types of response to a changing situation”. It is shown that the majority of modern questionnaires diagnose stable characteristics of response to changes and tolerance to uncertainty. At the same time, the new questionnaire is a situational type technique that allows one to study the dynamic properties. In the study conducted on a sample of 565 adult respondents, a factor structure was developed; age and gender characteristics of response to a changing situation were determined, as well as questionnaire convergent validity. Confirmatory factor analysis, descriptive statistics, Cronbach's alpha coefficient, correlation analysis, Shapiro-Wilk test, t-test were used in the work. The resulting questionnaire includes 48 items, which suggests an assessment on the Likert scale. The questionnaire has good psychometric properties. The questionnaire reliably measures seven strategies for responding to a changing situation, which fall into two types: acceptance (1) and rejection (2) of change. The first type includes 1) Mastering of changes, 2) Overcoming constraints, 3) Desire for changes, 4) Preferring uncertainty. The second type includes 1) Avoiding changes; 2) Preventing changes; 3) Maintaining stability. When comparing the indicators of strategies for age groups (17-24 years old and 25-67 years old), no significant differences were found. This may be due to the predominance of young adults in the sample of approbation. Analysis of gender differences showed that women more often report strong negative emotions, internal resistance in a situation of life changes. Men are more likely to indicate a preference for uncertain situations. The novelty of the questionnaire is associated with the ability to operationalize strategies for responding to changes as changing the way of interacting with a life situation.
