Abstract

The development and validation of a balanced Authoritarianism-Rebellion Scale is described. It proved adequately reliable and showed little susceptibility to double agreement. In addition, it related predictably to the following: Left Opinionation, Right Opinionation, and Conservatism-Liberalism; conventional religious preference and frequency of religious attendance; and membership in each of five student political groups with generally clear positions on the ideological left-right dimension. Factor analysis of the Authoritarianism-Rebellion Scale yielded five factors, including rebelliousness and general right-wing authoritarianism. It was notable that scores on these two factors did not correlate highly. The explanation proposed was that consistent ideological organization along a left-right, rebellious-authoritarian dimension is a socially important exception rather than the rule.
