Describing the person’s external environment: Conceptualizing and measuring the Life Space

Abstract

A measure is developed for the depiction of a person's external life space. This external life space is divided into a person's biological foundations, the groups which contain the person, and the person's interactions with the environment. The overall measure is characterized by five factors including Caring Environment, Drug Culture Environment, Social Interacting Environment, Athletic Environment, and Isolated Environment. These dimensions correlate with measures of internal personality processes; they also help contextualize the person in his or her environment.
