FORMIGA, Nilton; GALVAO, Lilian De S.; SANTOS, Miriane Da S.  e  CAMINO, Cleonice Dos S.. Structural Consistency of the Interpersonal Reactivity Multidimensional Scale: A Study with Civil and Military Youth. Eureka [online]. 2012, vol.9, n.2, pp.171-184. ISSN 2220-9026.

In general, empathy can be understood as the ability of a person to put yourself in the other's sight, able to infer their feelings and, based on knowledge acquired in the empathic process, respond affectively more adequately to the situation that the other is going through. Recent studies in Brazil validated and confirmed the factorial structure of the Interpersonal Reactivity Multidimensional Scale (IRMS), with this, this study aims to evaluate the structural consistency of the IRMS Scale in a sample of young people from different socio-scholars contexts. 376 men and women of 17 to 33 years of a public and military high school educational institution of the city of João Pessoa, answered to the IRMS and a demographic questionnaire. It was observed that the total sample and, separately, for the young soldiers and civilians, the psychometric scale showed indicators that ensured the factorial structure, which as found by other Brazilian authors. These results show, both conceptually and empirically, the consistency of IRMS, regardless of the sample diversity. It was still found that young civilians had higher means for the young soldiers into empathetic consideration and personal anguish, but in perspective taking, the result was reversed.
