    Hey everyone,
    I'm doing a 1st year uni research project & I need to find a questionnaire which measures people's conformity levels.
    I have tried searching, but had no luck, and was wondering if anyone could help me out, maybe if you've used something before?
    Thanks
    +rep goes to whoever sends me one first, of course x

    Erm, well there are loads of studies done on conformity, maybe you could look at them and devise something yourself?

    This is only an A level suggestion, but what we did once was show particpants a picture of a woman or man and ask them to write down how old they thought he/she was, on a piece of paper. One group are shown a picture and write on a blank piece of paper, and the other group is given a piece of paper with 'other participants' suggestions. Supposedly, those with a higher level of conformity write an age similar to what is on the rest of the page.
    Hope this helps in some way!

    We've been told to use one that's already out there. That gives it validity whereas one we make ourselves might be flawed.

    Oh dear..

    I think OP is looking for an academic questionnaire that has been reliability and validity tested and subsequently been used in research.

    I think you'll really struggle to find an academic questionnaire that has been published. I've just been creating a questionnaire for my third year dissertation (sciences though), and it takes a LOT to validate it, and mine is still incredibly flawed.

    Yeah I know, but I couldn't find anything apart from these so I just thought I'd post them anyway :p: Also hence why I did say that they probably aren't what they were looking for...

    OP, try the Concern For Appropriateness Scale (Lennox & Wolfe, 1984).

    or the Conformity Vignettes (Brendt, 1979).

    Hey sorry this is over a year late but thanks for your help all that time ago with this.

    And apologies to everyone who asked me for the link to the one I used, as I'm now on a different computer and have no way to find it again (and not organised enough to have saved a copy of it).

    I hope your research all goes well to those who are doing similar things to what I did two years back.

    Hi I'm currently doing my EPQ my question is "why do we socially conform?" I thought maybe using a questionnaire could really make my essay so much more interesting to corroborte with research. Any suggestions please?? Thanks
