Analyzing the responses given by 801 Italian participants (F = 635; mean age = 24.78 years),we performed a confirmatory factor analysis of an Italian version of Funke’s RWA3D scale,aimed at assessing right-wing authoritarianism as a three-dimensional construct definedby authoritarian submission, authoritarian aggression, and conventionalism. The modelshowing the best fit was a three-correlated-factors model, controlling the semantic directionof the items as correlated uniquenesses. Such model was invariant between genders.However, the very strong correlations among the three substantive factors warned againstmechanically considering the scale as three-dimensional.
