RMQ scale reliabilities were comparable to CDSII scale reliabilities (McAuley et al., 1992), and substantially better than the reliabilities of other attributional style scales, such as the ASQ (Cutrona et al., 1985; Peterson et al., 1982) and EASQ (Metalsky et al., 1987) scales.
Ahrens & Haaga (1993), in a study of attributional style and expectancies to the measures of affectivity, anxiety and depression, provide an intercorrelation between the scores on the six positive scenarios drawn from the Attributional Style Questionnaire (ASQ; Peterson, Semmel, von Baeyer, Abramson, Metalsky & Seligman, 1982) and the scores on the Expanded Attributional Style Questionnaire (EASQ; Peterson & Villanova, 1988) which contains only negative events.
However, even in the case of the EASQ, which is an attempt to increase the internal consistency of the attributional style questionnaires by adding more items, the alphas of negative stability and globality had quite higher coefficients (.85 and .88, respectively) compared to the negative internality dimension (.66).
