Self-Concealment Scale (SCS)
Self-concealment (SC) is an individual difference variable defined as the predisposition to actively conceal from others’ personal information that one perceives as “distressing or negative” (Larson and Chastain 1990, p. 440) and measured with the self-concealment scale (SCS).
