Yuki Kawatsu, Daiki Kato


The main purpose of the present study is to develop a scale measuring the sense of resistance to azatoi behavior in female Japanese university students. The participants in this study were 114 Japanese female university students and 18 items were rated. First, the factor structure of the Azatoi Behavior Resistance Scale (ABRS) was investigated using exploratory factor analysis. Then, the validity of the structure was examined using confirmatory factor analysis. The result of the analysis showed that the fit indices indicated the best fit for the four-factor model, and the four factors were gesture, physical contact, adjustment, and typical behavior.
