Assessing Negative Attributions After Brain Injury With the Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire.

J Head Trauma Rehabil 2020 Sep/Oct;35(5):E450-E457

Departments of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Drs Neumann and Hammond) and Biostatistics (Dr Perkins and Ms Bhamidipalli), Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis; Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana, Indianapolis (Drs Neumann and Hammond); Division of Clinical Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Psychology, H. Ben Taub Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Baylor College of Medicine and Harris Health System, Houston, Texas; Brain Injury Research Center, TIRR Memorial Hermann, Houston, Texas (Dr Sander); Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis (Ms Witwer); and Department of Psychology, University of Texas at Tyler, Tyler (Dr Combs).

Objectives: (1) To explore the construct validity of the Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire (AIHQ) in participants with traumatic brain injury (TBI) (ie, confirm negative attributions are associated with anger and aggression); and (2) use the AIHQ to examine negative attribution differences between participants with and without TBI.

Setting: Two rehabilitation hospitals.

Participants: Eighty-five adults with TBI and 86 healthy controls (HCs). Read More

Evaluation of social cognitive measures in an Asian schizophrenia sample.

Schizophr Res Cogn 2020 Jun 10;20:100169. Epub 2019 Dec 10.

Research Division, Institute of Mental Health, Singapore.

Background: Converging evidence has indicated that deficits in social cognition may manifest as poor functioning; therefore, social cognition has emerged as an important research area and treatment target. However, few studies have examined the psychometrics of multiple social cognition measures in an Asian population. This study aims to evaluate the psychometrics of measures indexing the four core social cognition domains. Read More

Exploring the Role of Meditation and Dispositional Mindfulness on Social Cognition Domains: A Controlled Study.

Front Psychol 2019 11;10:809. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria de Aragón, IIS Aragón, Zaragoza, Spain.

Research suggests that mindfulness can induce changes in the social domain, such as enhancing emotional connection to others, prosocial behavior, and empathy. However, despite growing interest in mindfulness in social psychology, very little is known about the effects of mindfulness on social cognition. Consequently, the aim of this study was to explore the relationship between mindfulness and social cognition by comparing meditators with non-meditators on several social cognition measures.

What Does the Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire Really Measure? The Importance of Context in Evaluating Hostility Bias.

J Pers Assess 2020 Mar-Apr;102(2):205-213. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Psychology, Maria Grzegorzewska University, Warsaw, Poland.

We examine the psychometric validity of the Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire (AIHQ) by applying confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Previous analysis of psychometric features of the AIHQ showed problems with internal consistency and stability of the tool over time. By using CFA we wanted to check whether the scenes depicted in the questionnaire actually measure the same construct and whether the subscale measures are intercorrelated. Read More

The Social Attribution Task - Multiple Choice (SAT-MC): Psychometric comparison with social cognitive measures for schizophrenia research.

Psychiatry Res 2018 04 7;262:154-161. Epub 2018 Feb 7.

VA Connecticut Healthcare System, Research Service, West Haven, CT, USA; Yale School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, New Haven, CT, USA.

The Social Attribution Task-Multiple Choice (SAT-MC) tests the ability to extract social themes from viewed object motion. This form of animacy perception is thought to aid the development of social inference, but appears impaired in schizophrenia. The current study was undertaken to examine psychometric equivalence of two forms of the SAT-MC and to compare their performance against social cognitive tests recommended for schizophrenia research.

Improving measurement of attributional style in schizophrenia; A psychometric evaluation of the Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire (AIHQ).

J Psychiatr Res 2017 06 9;89:48-54. Epub 2017 Jan 9.

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, USA; Australian Catholic University, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

While attributional style is regarded as a core domain of social cognition, questions persist about the psychometric characteristics of measures used to assess it. One widely used assessment of attributional style is the Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire (AIHQ). Two limitations of the AIHQ include (1) a possible restricted range resulting from too few and too homogenous item scenarios, and (2) use of rater scores that are cumbersome and time-consuming to score and have unknown incremental validity.

Revisiting the validity of measures of social cognitive bias in schizophrenia: Additional results from the Social Cognition Psychometric Evaluation (SCOPE) study.

Br J Clin Psychol 2016 Nov 11;55(4):441-454. Epub 2016 May 11.

Department of Psychololgy and Neuroscience, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA.

Objective: The ongoing Social Cognition Psychometric Evaluation (SCOPE) study is in the process of forming a gold-standard battery of social cognition tests for use in clinical trials. Previous SCOPE phases have not acknowledged key differences between social cognition skills and biases, and psychometric validity analyses might provide important information if tailored to bias-related outcomes. This study aims to validate these measures with such bias-related outcomes. Read More

New instrument for measuring multiple domains of social cognition: construct validity of the Social Cognition Screening Questionnaire (Japanese version).

Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 2014 Sep 22;68(9):701-11. Epub 2014 Apr 22.

Department of Psychiatry, National Center of Neurology and Psychiatry, Tokyo, Japan; Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University Graduate School, Tokyo, Japan.

Aim: The present study aimed to test the construct validity and internal consistency of the Social Cognition Screening Questionnaire (SCSQ) (Japanese version).

Methods: We first tested whether the subscale scores and the total score of the SCSQ could discriminate patients with schizophrenia from normal controls. Next, we tested the internal consistency. Read More

Attribution bias in ultra-high risk for psychosis and first-episode schizophrenia.

Schizophr Res 2010 May 19;118(1-3):54-61. Epub 2010 Feb 19.

Department of Psychiatry, Yonsei University College of Medicine, 250 Seongsanno, Seodaemun-gu, 120-752 Seoul, South Korea.

Background: Attribution style bias, such as a greater tendency to perceive hostility, has been reported to be associated with paranoia in multi-episode, chronic schizophrenia patients. The aim of this study was to investigate whether young, first-episode schizophrenia patients exhibited a perceived hostility bias and if this bias was correlated with persecutory symptoms. This study also explored whether this attribution bias, associated with paranoid tendencies, also emerged in participants at ultra-high risk (UHR) for psychosis. Read More

Perceptions of hostility by persons with and without persecutory delusions.

Cogn Neuropsychiatry 2009 Jan;14(1):30-52

Department of Psychology, University of Texas at Tyler, Tyler, TX 75799, USA.

Introduction: Current models of paranoia propose that ambiguous situations, in which cues regarding the intentions of others are lacking, may be perceived as hostile by persons with persecutory delusions (PD). Thus, a social-cognitive bias for the perception of hostility may be present. In this study, the Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire (AIHQ) was used to present situations that are ambiguous regarding the intentions of others. Read More

The Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire (AIHQ): a new measure for evaluating hostile social-cognitive biases in paranoia.

Cogn Neuropsychiatry 2007 Mar;12(2):128-43

Department of Psychology, University of Tulsa, OK 74104, USA.

Introduction: This study reports on the development of a new measure of hostile social-cognitive biases for use in paranoia research, the Ambiguous Intentions Hostility Questionnaire (AIHQ). The AIHQ is comprised of a variety of negative situations that differ in terms of intentionality. Items were developed to reflect causes that were ambiguous, intentional, and accidental in nature.
