Skepticism (alpha = ?)[edit]


  • I easily tend to question information.
  • Before accepting anything from others, I first need to have critically reflected on it myself.
  • My attitude in life is: seeing is believing.
  • I am suspicious by nature.
  • My friends and acquaintances think that I am a skeptic.

All items were measured on a 7-point scale with a -3 = completely disagree and a +3 = completely agree.
