This paper describes a brief measure of Bales's three SYMLOG dimensions. A sample of 204 undergraduates with a mean age of 24.7 yr., 72.4% of whom were women, completed the usual version of the SYMLOG Trait Rating Form. This could also be scored as if it were a simplified version, omitting some items. The Simplified Measure of the SYMLOG Trait Rating Form correlated fairly highly with the full form--with r between .87 and .89 for the corresponding versions of all three scale dimension scores--making it a suitable substitute for research or illustrative purposes on occasions when respondents' time is of the essence.
