Study of Validity ESK
MÍČAN, Vlastimil
The self {--} assess questionnaire ESK is constructed to measure the mental abilities of the person, his readiness for valuable and meaningful life. The target of the ESK is not to examine the psychological dimension of the person but to study his experience with using mental competences. The scores achieved in the questionnaire ESK do not describe permanent personality traits but they reflect the person{\crq}s present experience with using potential features, which are given everyone equally but people realize them to a different extent in their lives. The examined person is asked about his usual reactions, which enable him to cope with the life situations. The validity of many items is not evident, so the examined person does not know what is measured, which reduces the possibility that the answers are distorted in order to be social acceptable. The answers are divided into four basic scales, every two of these scales are merged into the higher factors and the total score is made out by combining these two factors. The total score expresses ``the overall fullness of the existence{\crqq} or ``the subjective perceived meaningfulness of the existence{\crqq}. The questionnaire was answered by 210 respondents and the survey results were compared with the austrian norms. Finally the correlative analysis of the questionnaires ESK and SPARO was made to find out relations between ESK scales and the personality structure of an individual.
