Generativity Check List and Scoring



At the end of “A Theory of Generativity and Its Assessment through Self-Report, Behavioral Acts, and Narrative Themes in Autobiography” you will find the Loyola Generativity Scale.


For each of the statements, please indicate how often the statement applies to you, by marking either a “0,” “1,” “2,” or “3”.


Mark “0” if the statement never applies to you.

Mark “1” if the statement only occasionally or seldom applies to you.

Mark “2” if the statement applies to you fairly often.

Mark “3” if the statement applies to you very often or nearly always.


When you have read and marked all 20 items, score your scale.


Add up the 20 items; note some are reversed so transpose those first: items 2, 5, 9, 13, 14 and 15 are reverse scored (i.e., 0 becomes 3; 1 becomes 2; 2 becomes 1; 3 becomes 0)


The higher your score the greater your generativity is. * 0-60 score; range 20-55; average: 40-41
