Discuss the different types of   validity that have been employed—whether implicitly or explicitly to validate   the life position scale

In 2002, Boholst constructed a   Life Position Scale for the purpose of finishing his dissertation. The   construct life position was one of the variables he studied in his doctoral   dissertation titled, The Influence of Life Scripts and Life Positions on   Psychopathology and Positive Mental Health: A Structural Equation Modeling. He   had to construct this scale because there was no available one at the time.   In 2005, he and two other authors wrote another article that found modest   correlations between Life Positions and Attachment Styles—validating the   scale by establishing the relationship between life positions and a variable   that was theoretically argued to have conceptual parallels or to be “similar”   with it. In 2012, Isgor and two other authors translated the Life Position   Scale into Turkish and established its reliability and validity.

This is often a realistic scenario   where a tool slowly attains credibility by a gradual validation process   across the years—often by different authors. For example, in 2004, Weisner   wrote his doctoral dissertation in the University of North Texas on the   relationship between Affective Traits and Life Positions. Hadzi-Pesic and   others more recently (2014) validated the Life Position Scale and found   correlations with alcohol addicts’ personality.

For this task, write a paper that addresses the following:

Discuss the different types of   validity that have been employed—whether implicitly or explicitly to validate   the life position scale. It is ideal therefore to read articles in   chronological order starting with the A Life Position Scale, Life   Positions and Attachment: A Canonical Correlation Analysis, and Life   Positions Scale Language Equivalence, Reliability and Validity Analysis.
