It's easier than ever to track down the self-report measures/instruments/tests/surveys you need for your research in social or personality psychology. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
 +
* If you have found a sample item in someone else's article (e.g., "We are approaching the limit of the number of people the earth can support") using the sample item (in quotes) as a search term in [http://www.google.com Google] is very likely to produce the full scale
 +
*Check out the [http://ipip.ori.org/ipip/index.htm International Personality Item Pool]--an enormous collection of scales designed to measure almost any personality trait you can imagine; internal consistency information is available for each scale, but little other psychometric information is provided
 +
*Another good resource is the [http://www.hs.ttu.edu/research/reifman/qic.htm Social-personality Psychology Instrument Compendium], which contains many links to published and unpublished scales commonly used in social and personality psychology
 +
*If you're interested in human well-being, strengths and virtues, check out what you can download from the [http://www.ppc.sas.upenn.edu/ppquestionnaires.htm Positive Psychology Questionnaires] collection
 +
*The [http://www.ppc.sas.upenn.edu/ppquestionnaires.htm CROW Scales Collection] contains a variety of social/personality-psychology related scales (CROW stands for Course Resources On the Web)
 +
*Check your college/university library to see if you can get access to books which contain full-text research questionnaires. A few examples of such books include:
 +
# ''Measures of Personality and Social Psychological Attitudes''
 +
# ''Measures for Clinical Practice and Research: A Sourcebook''
 +
# ''Handbook of Sexuality-Related Measures''
 +
# ''Measures of Religiosity''
 +
# ''Marketing Scales Handbook''
 +
* A tremendous number of questionnaires are available on researchers' web sites, so even if you don't have a sample item for a particular scale, searching on the name of the scale or the author's name in [http://www.google.com Google] can be helpful
