Resumen

GONCALVES, Gabriela; ORGAMBIDEZ-RAMOS, Alejandro; FERRAO, Maria Clara  y  PARREIRA, Tiago. Adaptation and Initial Validation of the Passion Scale in a Portuguese Sample. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.2, pp.19-27. ISSN 1989-3809.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5231/psy.writ.2014.2503.

Passion is defined as a strong inclination to engage in an activity that people like, that they find important, and in which they invest time and energy. As no specific measure to assess levels of passion in the workplace in Portugal is available, the aim of this study was to adapt the Passion scale into Portuguese and validate it. The scale was translated from English into Portuguese using the forward-backward translation method and administered to a sample of 551 Portuguese workers. Exploratory factor analyses were conducted to test the replicability of the scale. The results confirmed the expected two-factor structure: harmonious passion and obsessive passion. However, the initial criterion of the replication of the factorial structure based on item factor loadings was not fulfilled. Criterion-related validity was tested by correlations with passion and job satisfaction. Regarding internal consistency, adequate alpha coefficients were obtained for both factors.

Palabras clave : Passion Scale; Job Satisfaction; Exploratory Factor Analysis; Positive Psychology.
