Integrity (alpha = 0.87/0.85)[edit]

Description[edit]

Three facets of trustworthiness were measured based on scales designed by Mayer/Davis (1999) to assess the ability, benevolence, and integrity of a supervisor. The Likert-type scale ranged from 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree).

Definition[edit]

Integrity reflects an adherence to a set of acceptable principles or a set of shared values.

Items[edit]

  • My supervisor has a strong sense of justice. (Omitted from analysis)
  • I never have to wonder whether my supervisor will stick to his/her word.
  • My supervisor tries hard to be fair in dealing with others. (Omitted from analysis)
  • My supervisor’s actions and behaviors are not very consistent.
  • I like my supervisor’s values.
  • Sound principles seem to guide my supervisor’s behaviors.

Two items were omitted from the original scale as they were related to fairness.

Comments[edit]

The loading of one item (My supervisor’s actions and behaviors are not very consistent) was low.
