A Longitudinal Study Examining The Priming Effects of Music on Driving Anger, State Anger, and Negative-Valence Thoughts
Unformatted Document Text:  Violent Music 15 dimension: anger ( = .82), hostility ( = .83), physical aggression ( = .85), and verbal aggression ( = .78). Driving anger scale. The 14-item short version of Deffenbacher et al’s. (1994) Driving Anger Scale (DAS) was used to measure driving anger. The scale consists of six clusters: hostile gestures, illegal driving, police presence, slow driving, discourtesy, and traffic obstructions. The items were measured on a 7-point scale with 1 = no anger and 7 = high anger. The measure was reliability of ( = .88). Impulsiveness scale. A shortened 9-item version of Eysenck, Pearson, Easting, and Allsop’s (1985) L7 scale was utilized for this study. The items were measured on a 7- point scale with 1 = no and 7 = yes, and the measure was reliable ( = .79). State-anger scale. Spielberger, Jacobs, Russell, and Crane’s (1983) State-Trait Anger Scale (SAS) consists of 30 items. The items are measured on a 7-point scale with 1 = not at all like me, and 7 = very much like me. Reliability for the 15-item state anger measure was extremely good ( = .93). Thought-listing. Cacioppo and Petty (1981) designed this method to obtain cognitive responses from respondents. Respondents reported all thoughts occurring to them while listening to the music. Respondents were given three minutes to list their thoughts, which is consistent with the instructions provided by Cacioppo and Petty (1981). The researcher and another trained coder identified each thought as either a neutral, negative, or a positive thought. The inter coder reliability of ( = .93) for simple agreement resulting in an overall kappa of (k = .89). Thought valence was calculated as the difference between negative thoughts and positive thoughts divided by total thoughts.
