dc.description.abstractThe Free Will-Determinism Scale (Stroessner & Green, 1990) is a 17-item self-report scale with some items adapted from earlier work by Viney, Waldman, and Barchilon (1982). It measures the degree to which an individual believes in free will or determinism. The items are presented in a Likert-type format with responses ranging from (1) Strongly agree to (9) Strongly disagree, so that possible scores on the scale can range between 17 and 153. The scale yields three scores Religious-philosophical determinism, Psychosocial determinism and Libertarianism. The score on Religious-philosophical determinism is obtained by summing the responses to items 6, 8, 12, 14, 15, and 17. The score on Psychosocial determinism is the sum of responses on items 1, 2, 5, 7, 11, 13, and 16. The Libertarianism score is determined by summing the responses to items 3, 4, 9, and 10. The score on the belief in determinism is calculated by reverse scoring and summing the Libertarianism items 3, 4, 9, and 10. Sample items include `My choices are limited by God's plan for my life? (Religious-philosophical determinism item-6), `I will have free will all of my life? (Psychosocial determinism item-3), and `My exercise of free will is limited by my upbringing? (Libertarianism item-1).en
