MARTIN POO, Fernando; DANIEL LEDESMA, Rubén  y  LOPEZ, Soledad. Transcultural Version of the Zuckerman Kuhlman Personality Questionnaire (ZKPQ-50-CC) in the Argentinean Population. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2013, vol.6, n.1, pp.1-5. ISSN 1989-3809.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5231/psy.writ.2012.0609.

The aim of this study was to provide evidence of the validity of the ZKPQ-50-CC in the Argentinean population. The ZKPQ-50-CC is a brief personality measure to assess Zuckerman's Alternative Five-Factor Model. This instrument was simultaneously developed in different countries and languages, which makes it of special interest to cross-cultural research. The sample consisted of 895 adults selected from the general population in the city of Mar del Plata (Argentina). Psychometric analysis included dimensional validity, reliability and differences due to gender and age. The results yielded a five-factor structure which was consistent with the model, acceptable degrees of internal consistency, and age and gender differences for the scales. Overall, the results were consistent with the original instrument, although there were some slight differences. The findings provide evidence of the validity of the ZKPQ-50-CC in a cultural context different from those in which the instrument was developed. Further psychometric research is needed to assess the validity of the questionnaire, such as its convergent validity, test-re-test reliability and robustness against social desirability bias.
