Fear survey schedule iii oblique and orthogonal factorial structures in an american college population


, : Fear survey schedule iii oblique and orthogonal factorial structures in an american college population. Personality & Individual Differences 9(2): 401-410

The 78-item Fear Survey Schedule-III (Wolpe and Lang, 1964) was administered to 474 men and 545 women, ages 17-27, from the University of Wyoming and the scores were evaluated in orthogonal and oblique factor analyses using stringent criteria. Four main factors, similar in both genders, were identified, relating to fear of interpersonal events, animals and insects, medical and surgical procedures and bodily insults, and environmental concerns (agoraphobia-like). A majority of both men (59%) and women (78%) reported one or more extremely intense fears (rated "very much"), ranging in number from 1 to 40. This has not been reported in previous literature, yet is shown to have relevance for psychological research. The mean score on the majority of fear items was higher for women than men. Needs for additional items that are more male-oriented in the FSS-III and a greater theoretical grounding in FSS-III research are discussed.
