Adversarial Heterosexual Beliefs Test
Based on the work of Martha R. Burt
The Adversarial Heterosexual Beliefs Test is based on peer-reviewed research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. The test sets out to measure whether the respondent has a stereotypical view of gender roles, as well as whether the respondent believes that male-female relationships are fundamentally adversarial, manipulative, and coercive.

The Adversarial Heterosexual Beliefs Test (AHB) is a scientific and statistically validated instrument for measuring gender stereotypes and adversarial heterosexual beliefs in the general population. The Adversarial Heterosexual Beliefs Test does not address all possible sexual attitudes and does not purport to be exhaustive. The Adversarial Heterosexual Beliefs Test has repeatedly been shown to measure statistically significant differences in the sexual attitudes of heterosexual men and women. The original research by Burt is dated, yet modern iterations have updated the original research and largely confirmed its findings in the 21st century. The statistical analyses informing the test are broadly agreed to be scientifically valid.
Although all are designed to measure sexual attitudes, the IDR-AHB© should not be confused with any instruments authored by Burt or alternative research organizations. However, all are professionally-designed personality tests (or inventories) meant for measuring sexual attitudes in the Western world. The IDR-AHB© is the property of IDR Labs International. The original research was provided by Burt and published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
