What is Interpersonal Reactivity Index?

The Interpersonal Reactivity Index (IRI) is a published measurement tool for the multi-dimensional assessment of empathy. It was developed by , a professor of psychology at Eckerd College. The tool is widely used—the paper describing it, published in 1983, has been cited about 10,000 times, according to Google Scholar. The tool is a self-report comprising 28-items answered on a 5-point Likert scale ranging from "Does not describe me well" to "Describes me very well". The four subscales are: 1. * Perspective Taking – the tendency to spontaneously adopt the psychological point of view of others. 2. * Fantasy – taps respondents' tendencies to transpose themselves imaginatively into the feelings and actions of fictitious characters in books, movies, and plays. 3. * Empathic Concern – assesses "other-oriented" feelings of sympathy and concern for unfortunate others. 4. * Personal Distress – measures "self-oriented" feelings of personal anxiety and unease in tense interpersonal settings. Example questions: * 11. I sometimes try to understand my friends better by imagining how things look from their perspective. * 28. Before criticizing somebody, I try to imagine how I would feel if I were in their place.
