Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The validity of the Ego-Grasping Orientation Scale (EGO) was tested. Theoretically, the EGO is a measure of mental health based on Taoistic (i.e., Ancient Chinese) philosophy. A total of 68 research participants completed the EGO along with measures of Eastern/Western orientation, self-esteem, assertiveness, desire for control, social interest, anxiety, and depression. Results indicated that the EGO may be a better measure of Taoistic mental health when combined with scales of Eastern/Western orientation, depression, self-esteem, and social interest.
