Abstract

There is increasing interest in the abbreviated form of the Revised Eysenck Personality Questionnaire Revised (EPQR-A) as a research tool for psychologists. The present study evaluates the psychometric properties of a French translation of the EPQR-A in order to facilitate its use among French researchers. Data from a sample of French undergraduate university students were used. The dimensionality of the EPQR-A was examined in terms of the underlying latent factors. Using confirmatory factor analysis, we found evidence for the unidimensionality of the four EPQR-A subscales of extraversion, neuroticism, psychoticism, and the tie scale. These results are consistent with those of previous research with the original English version of the EPQR-A (Francis, Brown, & Philipchalk, 1992; Forrest, Lewis, & Shevlin. 2000). It is concluded that the French translation of the EPQR-A can be recommended for further use.
