I hadn't heard of the Bhatia measure before. A little research (see page 42 of Sharma and Sharma) explains that it is a performance base measure of ability for children in India. In general, you should obtain the test manual to learn about the recommended scoring procedure. A quick Google suggests it might be available from here: http://www.npcindia.com/ ...

I've been developing an online platform to run HTML5/Javascript experiments, recruit participants via email, facebook, or twitter, and collect and evaluate results in real time. Neither you nor your participants require anything but a web browser. As Eoin already mentioned you will still need to develop the experiment yourself in HTML5/Javascript. However I ...

Cross Validated has plenty of info on this topic; arguably it's a duplicate of some question over there. Check out "Under what conditions should Likert scales be used as ordinal or interval data?" and my synopsis of Bollen and Barb (1981) in this answer. If you have more to say about why this is a question specific to Cognitive Sciences (beyond the ...

I would like to answer this question from a mathematical point of view. The word "openness" means something that is real and correlated with some other aspects. Let's assume a 3 dimensional space. If we would like to choose the other dimensions as perpendicular to this first one, we could simply define them by their correlation with the first one being 0. ...

This previous answer talks about evidence for a global or possibly two factor model partially explaining the correlations between the Big 5. In general this global factor may reflect some form of positive, well-being, social adjustment type variance. More generally, having orthogonal factors is desirable from a parsimony perspective. It's useful when ...

There are no personality models in which the factors are orthogonal in the strict sense of being at 90 degrees from one another, unless an orthogonal rotation method is used to extract them. I think you meant to say that the Big Five factors are less independent (or more strongly inter-correlated) relative to the factors in other models. Whether or not one ...

Sorry this is a little late, and I couldn't comment on the previous comment, but a good and comprehensive (if not somewhat dated) reference for what the ANPS is all about can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Affective-Neuroscience-Foundations-Emotions-Science/dp/019517805X# This is the text in which Jaak Panksepp basically sets out the decades of ...
