Evidence of the properties of an ambiguity tolerance
measure: The multiple stimulus types ambiguity tolerance
Since the limited research exploring the relationships between dishonesty and the personality traits of sensation-seeking, locus of control, conscientiousness, and ambiguity tolerance

Second, mindfulness outcomes such as affect tolerance and ambiguity tolerance

Comparison between native and nonnative English speakers revealed significant differences in their ratings on tolerance of ambiguity, with native English speakers reporting a higher level of ambiguity tolerance
Participants provided three types of information via online questionnaires: demographics, beliefs, and ambiguity tolerance
measures; a dream summary and confidence ratings; and similarity ratings.
Therefore, to check the validity of the GRP scale, a correlation analysis between the score of the five-item GRP scale and those of related scales was performed, including openness (Goldberg, 2006), problem-specific ambiguity tolerance
(Ashford and Cummings, 1985), general ambiguity tolerance
(McLain, 1993), financial risk propensity (Kapteyn and Teppa, 2002) and gambling risk propensity (Weber et al.
As indicated earlier, the Measure of Ambiguity Tolerance
(MAT-50) has an adequate level of content validity, good construct validity, and strong criteria-related validity, and high internal reliability (r = .
In this work, we present the preliminary adaptation to Spanish of a measure of ambiguity tolerance
, the Multiple Stimulus Types Ambiguity Tolerance
Scale (MSTAT-II; McLain, 2008), whose goal is to measure an individual's cognitive orientation towards various types of ambiguous stimuli, using a questionnaire that is short enough to avoid fatigue when used concurrently with other instruments, but which has acceptable levels of reliability and validity.
is a critical skill for making high-quality organizational decisions in complex environments (Lewin & Stephens 1994; McCormick 2001; Mitton 1989).
The question of whether homogeneity of demographics in the workplace could play a role in explaining the higher levels of ambiguity tolerance

In our work we used the Multiple Stimulus Types Ambiguity Tolerance
(MSTAT) measure to assess therapists' overall tolerance for ambiguity.
My view, from a professional perspective, is that more emphasis might have been given to the value of this concept as a mechanism for increasing ambiguity tolerance
