Operationalization
Six item index. Typical items are :
- Some people make you dislike them so
  that whatever they want you to do,   
  you just want to do the opposite.
- You feel that you are going to    
  explode.

For each item, the respondent was asked if he experienced the symptom many times, sometimes, hardly ever, or never (1 = many times and sometimes,  
0 = hardly ever and never).
Maximum score = 6, minimum score = 0.
Those with a score of two or more are
considered as hostile.
