  • MM Tri Susetyaning Mildawani


Adaptability behavior is an individual's ability to harmonize with the environment. The ability behavior to adapt is tested as one of the independent variables that affects an individual's ability to perform competitive behaviours in an effort to be able to make individual achievements. This ability to adapt develops as a result of individual interaction with the environment and is acquired as a result of learning by individual perceptions. Measurement of adaptability can be done with a Likert scale based on indicators of identification of individual competencies, adaptation strategies and adaptation priorities. Identification of individual competence is defined as an individual's ability to know and understand the ways and attitudes of individuals that are critical characteristics of behaviour. Adapted strategy is defined as appropriate ways of presenting oneself based on intellectual abilities. Adapt priority is defined as the individual's ability to realize alternative behaviours. There are 16 items on the adaptability scale. After statistical analysis was carried out, there were 13 items that met the validity and reliability test rules. Testing of measuring instruments was carried out on 60 students of the Faculty of Psychology Atma Jaya Jakarta. Of the 16 items, it is known that 13 items have a validity score between 0.319-0.504 with a reliability score of 0.747. The preparation of the adaptability measurement tool will be described in detail in this scientific paper. Keywords: adaptability, behavior, competence, priority, strategy
