The Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BPAQ) is a 29-item self-report measure that includes four subscales. (Buss & Perry, 1992)
  • physical aggression (9 items),
  • verbal aggression (5 items),
  • anger (7 items)
  • hostility (8 items) (Buss & Perry, 1992).


There is no time frame specified, and items are rated using a seven-point scale from “extremely uncharacteristic” to “extremely characteristic”.
