Abstract

Evaluated the Cognitive Bias Questionnaire and the Scale of Attributional Style vis-á-vis the Beck Depression Inventory and each other in 2 undergraduate samples. The best correlations of each cognitive measure were in the .23-.44 range. Neither is clearly more closely associated with depression than the other; and the two are not closely enough related to each other to be viewed as equivalent.
