Sind interindividuelle Unterschiede in der Informationsverarbeitung interkulturell vergleichbar?

Der Vortrag stellt Perspektiven interkulturelle etischer und emischer Persönlichkeitsforschung vor. The present talk provides perspectives on cross-cultural etic and emic personality assessment.

Are individual differences of information processing cross-culturally comparable? Anja Leue, University of Kiel The present psychometric study investigates whether self-reported individual differences of information monitoring differ across societies. In this respect, emic and etic issues on personality differences and measurements will be introduced. The cross-cultural investigation by means of the Conflict Monitoring Questionnaire (CMQ) was four-fold: (1) Psychometric properties of the online CMQ are presented in a German and a British sample. (2) Cross-cultural factorial validity of the online CMQ, (3) results of measurement equivalence and (4) norms for the online CMQ are reported. The current sample comprises N = 890 participants with n = 447 German and n = 443 British participants. Psychometric properties confirmed evidence for a subset of 37 out of 44 CMQ items. Confirmatory factor analysis provided evidence for the hierarchical structure including one second-order factor and four primary-order factors. Results of a Multiple-Indicator-Multiple-Cause (MIMIC) model suggested measurement variance for gender, language and age groups depending on the latent factors of the CMQ-37. The data will be discussed for their perspectives in etic and emic personality assessment. The relevance of cross-cultural norms will be highlighted for the field of personality assessment and for cross-cultural comparisons of information processing.

Die Veranstaltung findet im Raum 2 statt.
