GOMES, Clystine Abram Oliveira; SOARES, Adriana Benevides; MOURAO, Luciana  and  HERNANDEZ, José Augusto Evangelho. Enamor Style Inventory: Construction and validition. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.2, pp. 151-159. ISSN 1677-0471.

The goal of this study was to build and analyze the psychometric features of an Enamor Style Inventory (IEE). A set of items based on heterosocial skills and social skills was submitted to a sample of 303 participants, comprised of both sexes with 18 to 30 years of age. Through Exploratory Factor Analyses a solution of 26 items was deduced, divided between two factors called Subtle Enamor Style (ESE) and Direct Enamor Style (EDE). Cronbach's alphas were calculated as 0.85 and 0.87, respectively. Convergent validity evidence was obtained between the IEE and Social Skills Inventory (IHS) factors. The ESE showed significant positive correlations with Coping and Self-assertion with Risk. The EDE was negatively correlated with the factors Self-Exposure to Strangers and New Situations. These results suggest the use of IEE for research in the fields of social and clinical psychology
