Our Classification
Operationalization
Psychological freedom is about the capability to choose and denotes an absence of inner restrictions. It is measured using the Rosenberg (1965) Self Esteem Scale, which is a 10 item questionnaire:
a: I feel that I am a person of worth, at least on an equal plane with others
b: I feel that I have a number of good qualities
c: All in all, I am inclined to feel that I am a failure
d: I am able to do things as well as most other people
e: I feel I do not have much to be proud of
f: I take a positive attitude toward myself
g: On the whole, I am satisfied with myself
h: I wish I could have more respect for myself
i: I certainly feel useless at times
j: At times I think I am no good at all

The second measure used to measure psychological freedom is Acquiscence, which is obtained from the revised NEO personality inventory.
