The State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory-2 (STAXI-2) is a 57-item inventory which measures the intensity of anger as an emotional state (State Anger) and the disposition to experience angry feelings as a personality trait (Trait Anger). The instrument consists of six scales measuring the intensity of anger and the disposition to experience angry feelings. Items consist of 4-point scales that assess intensity of anger at a particular moment and the frequency of anger experience, expression, and control.
The STAXI-2 State Anger scale assesses the intensity of anger as an emotional state at a particular time. The Trait Anger scale measures how often angry feelings are experienced over time. The Anger Expression and Anger Control scales assess four relatively independent anger-related traits:
(a) expression of anger toward other persons or objects in the environment (Anger Expression-Out);
(b) holding in or suppressing angry feelings (Anger Expression-In);
(c) controlling angry feelings by preventing the expression of anger toward other persons or objects in the environment (Anger Control-Out);
(d) controlling suppressed angry feelings by calming down or cooling off (Anger Control-In).
Individuals rate themselves on 4-point scales that assess both the intensity of their anger at a particular time and the frequency that anger is experienced, expressed, and controlled.
The Manual presents correlations of the State Anger and Trait Anger scales with other personality scales. It also provides evidence supporting validity of the anger expression scales. Norms are available for adolescents (16 to 19 years) and adults, and psychiatric patients.
The STAXI-2 is hand scored using a two part carbonless form. The booklet contains a scoring grid for recording raw scores, percentiles and T-scores, along with a profile for graphing percentile scores.
The STAXI-2 manual offers instructions for administration and scoring, information on the construction and development of the STAXI/STAXI-2, guidelines for interpretation, validation studies, a summary of research performed, and a Bibliography.
Kit includes manual, 25 reusable item booklets, 50 rating sheets, and 50 profile sheets.
