This script implements the Decisional Forgiveness Scale (DFS) as described in:
Worthington et al (2012):“Decisional and Emotional Forgiveness: Conceptualization and Development of Self- Report Measures.”
This instrument can be found on page 39 of “Decisional and Emotional Forgiveness: Conceptualization and Development of Self- Report Measures.”
Available online at: http://www.evworthington-forgiveness.com/assessment-scales/
8 5-point Likert Scale.
1. Inhibition of Harmful Intentions
2. Prosocial Intentions
DATA FILE INFORMATION:
The default data stored in the data files are:
(1) Raw data file: 'DFS.iqdat'
date, time, group, subject: date and time script was run with the current group/subjectnumber
build: the Inquisit build
q*_response: score given (in assigned values) - reflects reversed scoring where appropropriate
q*_latency: how much time (in ms) the participant spent on the surveypage with this particular question (the last time this particular surveypage was visited)
(2) Summary data file: 'DFS_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per participant)
script.startdate: date script was run
script.starttime: time script was started
script.subjectid: subject id number
script.groupid: group id number
script.elapsedtime: time it took to run script (in ms)
computer.platform: the platform the script was run on
/completed: 0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted); 1 = script was completed (all conditions run)
/IHI: Inhibition of Harmful Intention Subscale score (items reversed scored where appropriate) (Range:4-20)
/PSI: Prosocial Intention Subscale score (items reversed scored where appropriate) (Range: 4-20 )
/total: total score (range: 8-40)
8 5-point Likert Scale.
1. Inhibition of Harmful Intentions (questions: 1*, 4*, 6*, 8); the lower the score, the fewer harmful intentions are inhibited
2. Prosocial Intentions (questions: 2*, 3, 5, 7*); the lower the score, the fewer intentions are prosocial
* reversed scored questions
