A New Method for Assessing Mental Regulation - the Questionnaire "Behavioral Control"

654

Abstract

The article is described a new method for assessing the regulation of behavior — the questionnaire "Behavioral Control". The behavioral control within the framework of the system-subject approach is considered as a united regulatory system, including three subsystems of regulation, which are based on the resources of individuality and are integrated, creating an individual pattern of self-regulation. The questionnaire contains 27 questions and allows to evaluate three components of behavioral control: cognitive, emotional and volitional control, as well as the general level of behavioral control. The questionnaire was standardized on a sample of 689 people (aged 18-79 years). The questionnaire has good psychometric indicators (Cronbach's alpha 0.86 for the total score and 0.65-0.82 for individual scales). Confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the theoretical three-component model of behavior control. The questionnaire can be used in various types of research to solve diverse psychological tasks.
