Dic-Dem Leadership Scale

120-Question Scientific Measure of Dictatorial to Ideal Democratic Leadership

This research scale explores the possibility of developing a reliable and valid scale for assessing political leader traits along a measure from dictator-proneness to ideal democratic leader-proneness.

I need educated, informed voting-age adults to carefully rate political leaders with whom they are quite familiar, as from reading their policy statements, political speeches, writings or media reports, or biographies in the case of historical figures. Please note that this questionnaire is in the research phase and results are tentative.
