Validation of Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory Short Form in the Indian Context

Rajib Chakraborty | Dr. Vijay Kumar Chechi

Abstract: The present study tried to validate the short form of Zimbardo time perspective inventory (Orosz et al. , 2017), originally developed by Zimbardo and Boyd (1999) in the Indian context.187 engineering students (159 boys and 28 girls) belonging to the School of Computer Science and Engineering, of Lovely Professional University, Phagwara, Punjab, India, were part of the study. The retained and inter-related five factors, with 16 items, using exploratory factor analysis, explained 51.313 percent of variance in the measured construct and had internal consistency reliability Cronbach’s alpha of 0.671. The Greatest lower bound reliability is between (0.822, 1). The extracted factors moderately represented the time perspective construct, when subjected to confirmatory factor analysis using SPSS AMOS ver.23. The result indicate the need of conducting further replication studies of the shorter version of ZTPI developed by Orosz et al. (2017) in multiple contexts and cultures for the eventual addressing of the validation related issues of Zimbardo time perspective inventory.
