Description In this presentation we would like to describe our attempts to validate several scales of individualism/collectivism, resp. independent/interdependent self-construals on Czech samples. In a series of studies we tried to validate: 1) the Independent and Interdependent Self Scale (IISS) on 659 participants, 2) the Self-Construal Scale (SCS) on 352 participants, and 3) the SCS with several reformulated items on a sample of 330 participants, using CFA and other methods of reliability estimation. Additionally, we tried to establish concurrent validity of SCS with INDCOL questionnaire, which is the only method that has been already validated in Czech. We have been only partially successful in these attempts. Even though some psychometric properties of these scales (e.g. Cronbach’s alpha) seem to be satisfactory, the confirmatory factor analyses usually reveal poor fit indices of the tested models. Possible reasons of these unsatisfactory results will be discussed.
