Content Analysis of Irrational Beliefs of University Students Using the Arabic Version of Irrational Beliefs Inventory (IBI)

Auther : Numan M. Al-Musawi

     The aim of this study is to analyze the content of irrational thinking among University students by administering the Arabic Version of the Irrational Beliefs Inventory (IBI) (Koopmans, et al., 1994). The author translated the IBI into Arabic, and the New measure was validated on a sample of 390 students enrolled at the University of Bahrain. Findings indicate that the items of the developed measure reprsent the same initial dimensions of the IBI. The subsequent analysis of the results reveal five distinctive features of irrational thinking: Anxiety, Rigidity, Problem Avoidance, Need for Approval, and Emotional Irresponsibility. In the light of these findings, the author suggests that institutions of higher education in Arab countries utilize, among others, the Arabic Version of IBI for the purposes of educational counseling.
