The Self-Construal Scale

The Self-Construal scale is a 30 items scale used to measure how people view themselves in relation to others. 2 subscales; interdependent self-construal and independent self-construal, comprise this scale. Each item is answered using a 7-point rating scale (1=strongly disagree, 4=neither agree or disagree, and 7=strongly agree). 15 items measure how much the repondent sees their self as separate, unique, and indepedentfrom others, while 15 items measure ho wmuch the respondent sees their self as connected, similar, and interdependent with others. Researchers have used the Self-Construal Scale with teens and adults from a wide range of socioeconomic, ethnic, and national backgrounds, including Americans of African, Asian, European, Latinx, Native, and Pacific Islander heritages who live on a low income or are working-class.
