Abstract
This article proposes and tests a shortened instrument for public service motivation based on Perry’s (1996) exploratory 24-item scale according to the investigation of Chinese civil servant in Kunming city. Results show good support for the shortened scale compared to Perry’s original work through investigating the PSM of Chinese civil servant in Kunming city. We got a 14-item scale for three factors, but the CIP dimension has not been emerged in the present study. At the same time, the results show that the total level of PSM for Chinese civil servant who was drew from the basic level of city government in Kunming, Yunnan is higher. Of three dimensions, the Mean of compassion is highest with a M=4.0871, the Mean of self-sacrifice is relatively low with a M=3.7328.
