A KUWAITI VERSION OF THE EYSENCK PERSONALITY QUESTIONNAIRE: ADULT FORM

Auther : By: Dr. Bader M. Al-Ansari

This study aimed at developing a Kuwaiti version of Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ): Adult Form, and to identify the psychometric properties of this version, and to develop Kuwaiti norms.  We also attempt a development of the Arabic translation of the 90-item Adult EPQ.  The main objective was to reproduce in Arabic, as accurately as possible, the questions asked in English.  Finally, the grammar was checked for gross irregularities.  The questionnaire was administered to (345) undergraduates from both sexes, (260) undergraduates from both sexes and (383) undergraduates from both sexes from Kuwait University.  Three types of reliability tests were applied to the questionnaire: Test – retest, Cronbach Alpha, Spearman-Brown coefficients.  All of the reliability test results indicated that the Extraversion, Neuroticism and Lay scales are reliable.  However, the Psychoticism scale is not reliable.  Construct validity results revealed (26) first order factors and (2) second order factors from the (90) items.  Overall, the reliabilities and the validities seem acceptable for only the Extraversion and Neuroticism and Lay scales.  Significant gender differences were reported on Psychoticism, Neuroticism and Lay.
