Hemispheric Preference Scale:
All 20 items are scored 1 (never) to 5 (always) from left to right. The key below indicates whether a question is to be scored as analytic or global. The averages of the 10 analytic questions and the 10 global questions are subtracted, and the difference score is a measure of preference.
|1. analytic||6. analytic||11. global||16. analytic|
|2. global||7. analytic||12. global||17. analytic|
|3. global||8. analytic||13. analytic||18. analytic|
|4. global||9. global||14. global||19. global|
|5. global||10. analytic||15. analytic||20. global|
These norms are based on almost 800 undergraduate and graduate students and represent percentiles corresponding to mean differences between analytic and global mean scores for males and females. For example, a male who has a 1.23 difference in favor of analytic would be in the 70th percentile. The development of local norms for specific groups is suggested.
