The take-home message here is that if researchers use the SOQ, they should anticipate mistakes in how respondents complete it and expect to provide additional instruction to ensure proper completion. Third, as highlighted by Hill and Fischer (2008), the rank-order format and the scoring system of the SOQ do not allow for standard estimates of internal consistency. Consequently, the internal reliability of the SOQ has not been well established in the empirical literature. Hill and Fischer proposed that an estimate of internal consistency for the SOQ could be determined from the correlation between the sum of the appearance-based attributes and the sum of the competence-based attributes.
