LEONARDO, Maria da Gloria Lima; FERREIRA, Maria Cristina; VALENTINI, Felipe  and  GABARDO-MARTINS, Larissa Maria David. Psychometric properties of the General Pro-Social Rule Breaking Scale. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.2, pp. 275-283. ISSN 1677-0471.

The aim of this paper was to gather validity evidence concerning the General Pro-social Rule Breaking Scale (GPSRBS) with samples collected in Brazil. To do so, two studies were carried out. In the first, 537 workers, of both sexes, replied to the GPSRBS and to a socio-demographic questionnaire. An exploratory factor analysis revealed three factors: efficiency, help to co-workers, and good service for clients, which presented internal consistency indices above 0.85. In the second study, the sample was composed of 491 workers, of both sexes. The results generated by a confirmatory factorial analysis replicated the structure of the first one. The GPSRBS also presented positive correlations with organizational retaliatory behavior and negative correlations with system protection. The psychometric properties of the scale recommend its further use in Brazilian investigations aimed at evaluating pro-social rule breaking behaviors
