Abstract [sv]

Subjekt-objekt intervjun (SOI) syftar till att bedöma en individs nivå av mental komplexitet. Studier gällande SOIs psykometriska egenskaper är fåtaliga och i huvudsak gjorda i USA. Föreliggande studie syftade till att undersöka indikationer på inter- och intrabedömarreliabilitet samt begreppsvaliditet i en svensk kontext. SOI utfördes på 11 universitetsstudenter mellan 20-33 år. Utöver enskilda bedömningar gjordes två gemensamma för att analysera intrabedömarreliabilitet. Begreppsvaliditet undersöktes via externa kriterier i två självskattningsformulär samt en öppen fråga. Svaren analyserades utifrån tematisk analys. Resultatet visade på en god, på gränsen till excellent interbedömarreliabilitet samt en god intrabedömarreliabilitet. Visst stöd för begreppsvaliditeter hölls då temana som framtogs från analysen av den öppna frågan på ett meningsfullt sätt kunde relateras till bedömd mental komplexitet. Vidare erhölls stöd för diskriminant validitet. Slutsatsen är att SOI kan resultera i likvärdiga bedömningar men att fler och större studier krävs för att få mer stöd för begreppsvaliditet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the Subject-­object interview (SOI) is to assess a persons level of mental complexity. Psychometric studies of SOI are few and mainly done in the USA. The aim of the present studie was to explore inter-­ and intraraterreliability and construct validity in a swedish context. SOI was done on 11 university students aged 20-­33. In addition to individual assessment two collaborative were carried out to analyse intraraterreliability. Constructvalidity was explored by external aspects in two questionnaires and an open question. Thematic analyse was used to construe the answers. Results showed a good, almost excellent interratereliability and a good intraraterreliability. Some support was found for a construct validity giving that the themes generated from the open question related to the assessed level of mental complexity in a way that was found meaningful. A discriminante validity was also supported. The conclusion is that SOI can beused by multiple scorers and result in comparable assessment but that more and larger studies are needed to receive more support for a construct validity.
