Note: The onesentence instructions at the top of
the CSIG form will vary across applications. The instructions shown below are
those used in Studies 14 of Locke (2014), where the context was
international relations. However, if the context is interorganizational
relations, then the instructions might ask about “other organizations”; if the
context is interethnic relations, then the instructions might ask about “other
ethnic groups”; and so on.
For each item below, answer the following question:
When my country’s representatives or leaders interact with representatives or
leaders of other countries, how important is it that we act or appear or are
treated in this way?

it is not at all important that... 
it is somewhat important that... 
it is moderately important that... 
it is very important that... 
it is extremely important that...

SAMPLE SPSS SYNTAX FOR CALCULATING CSIG SCORES:
* Compute octant scores.
* PA = Agentic, BC = Agentic & Uncommunal, DE = Uncommunal, FG = Unagentic & Uncommunal
* HI = Unagentic, JK = Unagentic & Communal, LM = Communal, NO = Agentic & Communal.
COMPUTE JK = (CSIG01+CSIG09+CSIG17+CSIG25)/4.
COMPUTE DE = (CSIG02+CSIG10+CSIG18+CSIG26)/4.
COMPUTE NO = (CSIG03+CSIG11+CSIG19+CSIG27)/4.
COMPUTE HI = (CSIG04+CSIG12+CSIG20+CSIG28)/4.
COMPUTE BC = (CSIG05+CSIG13+CSIG21+CSIG29)/4.
COMPUTE LM = (CSIG06+CSIG14+CSIG22+CSIG30)/4.
COMPUTE FG = (CSIG07+CSIG15+CSIG23+CSIG31)/4.
COMPUTE PA = (CSIG08+CSIG16+CSIG24+CSIG32)/4.
* Compute "Structural
Summary" parameters.
* Compute
overall agentic and communal vectors.
COMPUTE AGENTIC
= 0.25*(PAHI+(.707*(BC+NOFGJK))).
COMPUTE COMMUNAL
= 0.25*(LMDE+(.707*(NO+JKFGBC))).
* Compute "vector length" or "amplitude"
(AMP).
COMPUTE AMP = SQRT((AGENTIC**2)+(COMMUNAL**2)).
* Compute overall mean or "response elevation" (ELE).
COMPUTE ELE = MEAN(PA,BC,DE,FG,HI,JK,LM,NO).
* Compute Sum of Squared Deviations.
COMPUTE SStot =((PAELE)**2)+((BCELE)**2)+((DEELE)**2)+((FGELE)**2)+((HIELE)**2)+((JKELE)**2)+((LMELE)**2)+((NOELE)**2).
* Compute Circumplex GoodnessofFit (Rsquared = SSpredicted / SSobserved).
COMPUTE R2 =(4*(AMP**2)/SStot).
* NOTE: A simpler SPSS command to compute R2 without computing SStot above
is:.
COMPUTE R2 =(4*(AMP**2)/((VARIANCE(PA,BC,DE,FG,HI,JK,LM,NO))*7)).
* Compute Angular Displacement or Circumplex Angle (ANG)
COMPUTE Slope = AGENTIC/COMMUNAL.
IF (AGENTIC>0 and COMMUNAL>0) ANG = 000+artan(Slope)*(180/3.14159).
IF (AGENTIC>0 and COMMUNAL<0) ANG = 180+artan(Slope)*(180/3.14159).
IF (AGENTIC<0 and COMMUNAL>0) ANG = 360+artan(Slope)*(180/3.14159).
IF (AGENTIC<0 and COMMUNAL<0) ANG = 180+artan(Slope)*(180/3.14159).
* Compute ipsative scores (i.e.,
scores centered around respondent’s mean score)..
COMPUTE iPA=(PAELE).
COMPUTE iBC=(BCELE).
COMPUTE iDE=(DEELE).
COMPUTE iFG=(FGELE).
COMPUTE iHI=(HIELE).
COMPUTE iJK=(JKELE).
COMPUTE iLM=(LMELE).
COMPUTE iNO=(NOELE).
