Abstract:   (2334 Views)
Objective: The current investigation was aimed toward evaluating the factor structure and psychometric properties of the Identity Style Inventory (ISI, Berzonsky, 1992).
Method: The Farsi version of ISI and the Scales of Psychological Well-Being (SPWB, Ryff, 1989) were administered to a sample of 376 students (158 male 218 female) who were selected using multi-stage sampling. The three factor structure of identity styles and the mono-factor  of commitment were analyzed using confirmatory factor analysis.
Results: The results of confirmatory factor analysis revealed a clear three-factor structure of identity style and a mono-factor structure of commitment. High reliability for the styles of the ISI and commitment was indicated via internal consistency. Correlations between the ISI and commitment with scales of psychological well-being extended empirical support for the convergent validity of the ISI.
Conclusion: These findings speak to the robustness of the ISI, in revealing its relatively stable structure, and consequently, to its potential usefulness as a valid measure for assessing social-cognitive processes relevant to identity formation in Iranian students.
