Following are the factor names and association with spirituality or religiousness.

   Spirituality

Sense of Peace

Compassionate View of Others

   Religiousness

Faith in God

Religious Behavior

Psychometric properties

Ironson et al. (2002) provided values indicating adequate internal consistency and test-retest values supporting reliability of the scores in their study. In addition, they provided evidence supporting adequate concurrent and discriminant validity.

Availability: The complete list of items may be found in Ironson et al. (2002).

Emotional self-concept (5 items)  👉 [ Read more about Self-Concept and Self-Identity] The PSQ is a Likert-type scale with five response options ranging from totally disagree to totally agree. Reliability and Validity In the first study, coefficient alpha = .85 and in study two, alpha = .83. Data analysis supported a four-dimensional model (see the four categories above). Positive correlations with other self-concept measures were statistically significant. Other notes The authors estimated it took about 10 minutes to complete the PSQ. Their first study included people ages 12 to 36 ( n = 506). In the second s
