Agreeableness is a tendency to be pleasant and accommodating in social situations. It is considered to be a super-ordinate trait, grouping more specific personality traits that cluster together in situations that require getting along with others (Graziano, W.G., & Eisenberg, N., 1997).
This scale contains sixty (60) items with 30 positive and 30 negative items and each sub-trait includes 10 items. Each item ranked on the five-point Likert scale in five categories, i.e. Strongly Agree(5), Agree(4), Can’t Say(3), Disagree(2), Strongly Disagree(1) and for negative items it is Strongly Agree(1), Agree(2), Can’t Say(3), Disagree(4), Strongly Disagree(5). Norms have been prepared for the whole AMS, as well as for its six sub-scales separately on a representative sample of 436 employees of different cadres working in various banking and insurance companies.
However researchers have developed a number of scales which can measure the degree of agreeableness among people, but this tool may conveniently measure the degree of agreeableness as well as most of its major sub-traits that employees exhibit and express during various interactions and situations of their personal and work life. This scale will prove more suitable for the employees of supervisory level and above.
