Reliability and validity of parent and teacher report of behavioral inhibition (BI) was examined among children aged 3 to 5 years. Confirmatory factor analysis supported 6 correlated factors reflecting specific BI contexts, each loading on a single, higher order factor of BI. Internal consistency was acceptable, with moderate stability over 1 year and strong correlation with a brief inhibition subscale from a temperament questionnaire. Children who were rated by mothers and teachers as high BI…

Parent and Teacher Ratings of Temperamental Disposition to Social Anxiety: The BIS 3–6
TLDR
The moderate correlations with measures of internalizing symptoms and nonexistent correlations with externalizing measures suggest adequate convergent and discriminant validity and a new scoring system is proposed.
Retrospective Assessment of Behavioral Inhibition in Infants and Toddlers: Development of a Parent Report Questionnaire
TLDR
Principal Component Analysis of the Retrospective Infant Behavioral Inhibition Scale (RIBI) supported a three factor solution of the core features of BI in two unselected samples.
Psychometric Properties of the Behavioral Inhibition Questionnaire in Preschool Children
TLDR
Examination of the psychometric properties of the Behavioral Inhibition Questionnaire indicates that the BIQ displays evidence of reliability and validity that can complement observational paradigms.
Who Should Report Abnormal Behavior at Preschool Age? The Case of Behavioral Inhibition
TLDR
Discriminant analysis suggests that both parents and teachers tend to have a moderate-low ability to detect “inhibited” children.
Social and Non-Social Behavioral Inhibition in Preschool-Age Children: Differential Associations with Parent-Reports of Temperament and Anxiety
TLDR
It is suggested that BI is heterogeneous, and that distinguishing between different forms of BI may help account for the variation in trajectories and outcomes exhibited by high BI children.
A Brief Scale for Measuring “Behavioral Inhibition to the Unfamiliar” in Children
The behavioral inhibition scale (BIS) is a brief rating scale for measuring behavioral inhibition in children. The present study examined the test–retest stability of the BIS in a sample of
A Psychometric Evaluation of the Behavioral Inhibition Questionnaire in a Non-Clinical Sample of Dutch Children and Adolescents
TLDR
Psychometric properties of the Behavioral Inhibition Questionnaire suggest that the BIQ might be a reliable and valid measure for assessing behavioral inhibition not only in preschoolers but also in older children and adolescents.
The assessment of an inhibited, anxiety-prone temperament in a Dutch multi-ethnic population of preschool children
TLDR
Support is provided for the reliability and validity of the Behavioral Inhibition Questionnaire-Short Form as an economical method for assessing behavioral inhibition and anxiety proneness in young children.

The consistency and concomitants of inhibition: some of the children, all of the time.
TLDR
Toddlers with highly fearful temperaments and highly oversolicitous mothers were the most inhibited across contexts, and there was little consistency of inhibited behavior across the 3 situations.

Stable behavioral inhibition and its association with anxiety disorder.
TLDR
Psychopathology was assessed in children from a nonclinical sample originally identified as behaviorally inhibited or uninhibited at 21 months and followed through 7 1/2 years, suggesting that the association between behavioral inhibition and anxiety disorder is accounted for by children who have stable behavioral inhibition.

A 3-year follow-up of children with and without behavioral inhibition.
TLDR
It is indicated that inhibited children are at high risk for developing childhood-onset anxiety disorders and provide additional support for the hypothesis that behavioral inhibition is a predictor of later anxiety disorder.

TLDR
A review of the literature indicates that there are few studies at any one age level, and that much of the research is limited by small samples, but the results of a large sample factor analysis of parent and teacher ratings of preschool children are reported.
