Scoring+

The following main variables are scored:

  • Overall score: Measure of aggressive driving behavior.
  • Instrumental aggression: Rapid progress without consideration of others.
  • Anger: Emotional reaction to specific driving situations.
  • Enjoyment of violence: Affective aggression – harming others intentionally.
  • Acting out: Inconsiderate and arrogant driving style.
  • Negativism: Rejection of cooperative behaviors.

Social conformity provides a measure of the respondent’s credibility. In S1 a score for the difference under standard and stress instructions is also calculated.
