Abstract

In an attempt to clarify the nature of the construct measured by the Hostility subscale of Zuckerman and Lubin's [(1985): Educational and Industrial Testing Service] revised Multiple Affective Adjective Checklist (MAACL-R), 104 undergraduates completed the MAACL-R and the Aggression Questionnaire [Buss AH, Perry M. 1992. J Pers Soc Psychol 63:452–459]. Scores on the MAACL-R Hostility subscale were found to be related to the Aggression Questionnaire subscales of Physical and Verbal Aggressiveness but not its Hostility subscale. It is concluded that although the MAACL-R reflects some aspect(s) of aggressiveness, it may not be the best instrument for the measurement of hostility.
