A list of 100 words were checked for five degrees of preference by 118 adult male subjects of post-college age. The attitude categories were arbitrarily called; liberal, socialistic, sports, risk and annoyance, law enforcement, racial and religious, and cultural. The reliability coefficients ranged from +.77 down to +.29. The highest reliabilities were found for the attitudes of law enforcement, liberalism, and risk and annoyance. The lowest reliabilities were for the attitudes toward race and religion, socialism and the sports.
