Introduction

The Oxford Happiness Inventory (OHI) 29-Item,

each involving the selection of four options that are different for

each item. Although there is an Arabic version, it is not identical to

the original version in terms of the number of items and response.

Objectives

to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Arabic

adaptation OHI and its factorial structure in undergraduate sample.

Methods

The participants were 720 first year undergraduate

Kuwaitis: 360 males mean age = 20.38

±

1.60 and 360 females;

mean age = 19.71

±

1.39 (t = 5.87,

P

< 0.001). The Arabic version

of OHI (Argyle, Martin, & Crossland) was administered to partic-

ipants. The internal consistency reliability, factor structure, and

convergent validity of the OHI with Life Orientation Test (LOT-R,

Adult Hope Scale (AHS), Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) were

assessed as well as divergent validity of the OHI with Beck Depres-

sion Inventory-II (BDI-II)

Results

Internal consistency was satisfactory for the OHI (Cron-

bach’s alpha = 0.87) for males and (Cronbach’s alpha = 0.86) for

females. The results revealed no significant gender differences on

happiness (F = 1.77,

P

> 05). Principal component analyses (PCA)

showed that a seven-component solution explains %50.50 of the

total variance for males and 51.47% for females. The OHI posi-

tively correlates with the following variables: SWLS (

r

= .52), LOT-R

(r = 0.56) AHS (

r

= .48) while the OHI correlates negatively with BDI-

II (

r

= -54).

Conclusions

Findings confirm that the OHI provides satisfactory

validation, and thus it can be recommended as a measure of hap-

piness among Arab samples.

Introduction

Perfectionist Self Presentation represents the inter-

personal expression of perfectionism wherein individuals engage

in strategies that promote their supposed perfection and conceal

their perceived imperfections (Hewitt et al., 2003).

Objective

To investigate the psychometric properties of the Por-

tuguese version of the Perfectionist Self Presentation Scale/PSPS.

Methods

Two hundred and eighty-six university students (69.2%

females; mean age = 21.09

±

2.133) answered the Portuguese pre-

liminary version of the PSPS, and the Portuguese validated

versions of: Multidimensional Perfectionism Scales, Dirty Dozen

and Depression Anxiety and Stress Scale. To study the temporal

stability, 30 participants (66.7% females) answered the PSPS again

after six weeks. SPSS and MPlus were used.

Results

The PSPS Cronbach alpha was .91. The test-retest correla-

tion coefficientwas .66 (

P

< .01). Exploratory factor analysis resulted

in a three dimension’smodel (

2

= 1974.015,

P

< .01; RMSEA = 0.079,

90% CI = 0.069–0.088; CFI = 0.869; TLI = 0.812; SRMR = 0.046). The

three factors presented good internal consistency: F1 Perfection-

ist self-presentation (PSPS; a = .85), F2 Interpersonal Concern over

mistakes (ICM; a = .79); F3 Perfectionist image (PI; a = .70).

PSP and ICM (and PI with fewer significant coefficients and

lower magnitudes) were moderately to highly correlate with

personal standards, concern over mistakes, doubts about action,

self-oriented perfectionism and social prescribed perfectionism

(

≥

.40). Correlationswith narcissismandmachiavellianism, anxiety

and stress were moderate (

r

= .30) (all

P

< .01).

Conclusions

The Portuguese version of PSPS has good reliabil-

ity and validity, with the factorial model presenting an acceptable

fit (Hair et al., 2004). It could be very useful both in clinical and

research contexts, namely in an ongoing research project on the

relationship between perfectionism and interpersonal functioning.

Introduction

The Five-Factor Model organizes human per-

sonality traits under a comprehensive framework of five

dimensions–neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience,

agreeableness and conscientiousness. The dimensions are empir-

ical generalizations of enduring differences in behavioural,

emotional and cognitive patterns between individuals. The Por-

tuguese version of the NEO-Five Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI-20) is

increasingly used as it is the shortest version to evaluate the “Big

5”.

Objective

To investigate the reliability and the validity of the Por-

tuguese version of NEO-FFI-20-item (Bertoquini & Pais Ribeiro) in

a Portuguese sample, using exploratory and confirmatory factor

analysis (EFA and CFA).

Methods

747 participants [417 (55.8%) women; mean

age = 42.13

±

12.349 years] answered an online survey which

included the NEO-FFI-20 and socio-demographic questions. The

total sample was randomly divided in two sub-samples (sample A,

n

= 373; sample B,

n

= 374). Sample A was used to EFA and sample

B was used to CFA.

Results

The Portuguese version of NEO-FFI-20, excluding items

14 and 16, had an acceptable fit to the data (

2

/df = 2.28; TLI = .88;

CFI = .90; RMSEA = .06;

P

= .059). The internal consistency analysis

resulted in: Neuroticism, = .68; Extraversion, = .62; Openness to

Experience, = .74; Agreeableness, = .70; and Conscientiousness,

= .74.

Conclusions

The NEO-FFI-20 can be used to reliably and validly

evaluate the BIG FIVE in an ongoing research project on traffic psy-

chology to better understand and respond to risky behaviours on

the road.
