Social interest extreme response style and implications for adjustment

, : Social interest extreme response style and implications for adjustment. Journal of Research in Personality 16(1): 82-89

As part of a series of studies examining Adler's proposition that social interest, or interest and concern for others, is a major factor facilitating personal adjustment, the research investigated the relation between social interest and extreme response style (ERS). ERS was chosen as an indirect measure of maladjustment since research has confirmed Adler's contention that it is especially prevalent among neurotic individuals. In 3 studies involving a total of 221 human subjects, inverse relations were found between a measure of social interest and ERS scores derived from 4 questionnaires concerning attitudes toward self, others, and a wide variety of attitudinal issues. The results were not due to either apathy or repression being associated with social interest. Positive relations between social interest and adjustment are not limited to self-reports of the latter.
