The Short Form of the Five-Factor Narcissism Inventory: Psychometric Equivalence of the Turkish Version
Eksi, Füsun
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v16 n4 p1081-1096 Aug 2016
This study intends to examine the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the short form of the Five-Factor Narcissism Inventory (FFNI-SF). The study group consists of a total of 526 university students (54% were female) whose ages range from 18 to 32. In the translational equivalence study made over a two-week interval, the FFNI-SF scores showed high consistency. Cronbach's alpha was found to be 0.87 for the total score, and the alphas for the FFNI-SF subscales ranged from 0.57 to 0.79. Corrected item-subscale correlations for the items ranged from 0.22 to 0.73. Confirmatory factor analysis results have shown that among the three competing models derived from the conceptual models, Model 1 with 15 factors had the best goodness-of-fit to the data, ?[superscript 2] = 3851.48, df = 1605, ?[superscript 2]/sd = 2.40, RMSEA = 0.057, AGFI = 0.74, GFI = 0.77, CFI = 0.77, NNFI = 0.75. The correlation of total scores from the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI) and FFNI-SF was 0.65, p < 0.01. Study results indicated that the Turkish version of the FFNI-SF may serve as a useful tool in assessing narcissistic personality traits in non-clinical samples.
