Description The study concisely introduces the construct of the need for cognitive closure, the history of its measurement and the Czech version of the Brief Need for Cognitive Closure Scale (NFCS-15-CZ). The goal of the study is to present the basic psychometric properties of the NFCS-15-CZ - its factor validity, measurement invariance and reliability. Analyses use two samples from projects Paths to adulthood (N = 1405) and From Decisiveness to Authoritarianism (N = 1367). The results of confirmatory models support unidimensional interpretation of the scale and sufficient internal consistency in line with published properties of the original version. The unidimensional model is invariant with respect to gender, mode of administration and repeated administration. A weakness of the scale lies in its uneven coverage of all the construct's facets. Discussed shortcomings of the scale related to its shortness and limitations of some items imply the scale should be used in research preferably in structural models.
