Scoring

The scale responses are scored by averaging the responses of the benign envy and malicious envy subscales, respectively.

SPSS syntax:

* Dispositional Benign and Malicious Envy Scale (BeMaS, Lange & Crusius, 2015).
COMPUTE ben_envy = MEAN(benign1, benign2, benign3, benign4, benign5).
COMPUTE mal_envy = MEAN(malicious1, malicious2, malicious3, malicious4, malicious5).
EXECUTE.

If you named the variables according to their order, you will need to average the following items:

  • benign envy: 1, 3, 4, 7, 9
  • malicious envy: 2, 5, 6, 8, 10
