ORGAMBIDEZ-RAMOS, Alejandro; BORREGO-ALES, Yolanda  and  GONCALVES, Gabriela. Passionate workers: a Spanish adaptation of the Passion Scale. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.2, pp.43-48. ISSN 2174-0534.

Passion is defined as a strong inclination toward an activity the people like, that they find important, and in which they invest time and energy, like working. The aim of this study is to present evidence of the validity of the factor structure of the Spanish version of the Passion Scale. Exploratory factor analysis was carried out in a heterogeneous sample of 432 Spanish workers. The results confirmed the expected two-factor structure of passion in the workplace: obsessive passion and harmonious passion. A strong and positive correlation between harmonious passion and job satisfaction was observed, which is considered as an indicator of the positive nature of passion. Future research should investigate more extensively its construct validity with other organizational variables.

Keywords : Passion; Validity; Spanish version; Scale; Exploratory factor analysis; Job satisfaction.
