The present study provides validity estimates of the concept of rigidity. More specifically, the authors address the question whether the theoretical concept of rigidity adequately represents everyday behavioral patterns. Using multitrait-multimethod analyses and confirmatory factor analyses with self-ratings and other-ratings, the authors empirically examine whether and to what extent rigidity is related to other personality constructs (personal need for structure, cognitive flexibility, openness to experience, conscientiousness). A correlated traitcorrelated uniqueness model fitted the data most adequately. Rigidity demonstrates medium and large positive relationships with the concepts of conscientiousness and personal need for structure, respectively. Additionally, substantial negative relationships are found with cognitive flexibility and openness to experience. Given the present results, it is concluded that rigidity is represented in the present study by measures which demonstrate adequate validities, suggesting that the construct of rigidity amply represents everyday behavior.

The commercially available Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST) is one of the most commonly used tests for assessing executive functions within clinical settings. Importantly, however, it remains relatively unclear exactly what processes are assessed by the test. Conceptually, increased perseverative errors in sorting cards are usually related to deficient inhibition processes. Empirically, evidence supporting this conclusion is limited. In a sample of 38 healthy adults we addressed the question to what extent inhibition mechanisms assessed by the go/no-go and the stop-signal paradigm are related to WCST performances. Inhibition-related scores were found to predict non-perseverative errors better than perseverative errors. Consequently we conclude that the non-perseverative errors score reflects processes that are partly dependent on inhibition functions. [less ▲]

The Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST) assesses executive and frontal lobe function and can be administered manually or by computer. Despite the widespread application of the 2 versions, the psychometric equivalence of their scores has rarely been evaluated and only a limited set of criteria has been considered. The present experimental study (N 100 healthy adults) therefore examined the psychometric equivalence of 4 scores (i.e., Total Correct, Percentage of Errors, Perseverative Errors, and Failure-to-Maintain-Set) obtained on the 2 versions of the WCST in terms of 4 key criteria identified within the framework of classical test theory. The results showed considerable differences in variances, small to modest parallel-forms reliability coefficients, and small to modest temporal stability coefficients. Taken together, our results suggest that scores on the manual version and the computer version of the WCST show incomplete psychometric equivalence. [less ▲]
