This article reports a validation of the cultural consensus model (Romney, Weller, and Romney, 1986) and replicates and extends the findings of Weller (1984).  In two domains, informants who agreed more with each other displayed greater internal consistency in their responses to a paired comparison task than informants who agreed less with others.  Also, greater overall consistency among informants in a domain was associated with more overall agreement among informants in that domain.  No relationship was observed between either individuals' cultural competences (amounts of agreement with others) or consistencies across domains. However, males exhibited greater consistency than females.
