Thank you for your interest the Circumplex Scales of Interpersonal Efficacy (CSIE). The CSIE is a 32-item inventory designed to complement existing interpersonal circumplex measures by efficiently assessing confidence that one can engage in a variety of interpersonal behaviors. The eight 4-item scales of the CSIE appear to have a circumplex structure, adequate internal reliability, and convergent validity with measures of interpersonal values and interpersonal problems. A description of the development and psychometrics of the CSIE can be found in the following article:


Locke, K.D. & Sadler, P. (2007). Self-efficacy, values, and complementarity in dyadic interactions: Integrating interpersonal and social-cognitive theory. Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 33, 94-109.

You are free to administer the CSIE as you wish, and I welcome feedback about what you find to be the weaknesses and strengths of the measure.
