Psychometric properties of the Greek translation of the social phobia inventory
In the current study we examined the psychometric properties of the Greek adaptation of the Social Phobic Inventory (SoPhI) (Moore & Gee, 2003). The questionnaire is a 21-item self-report measure that assesses social anxiety based on the criteria of the DSM-IV-TR and DSM-5. A total of 221 university students volunteered to complete the SoPhI. Exploratory Principal Components Analysis indicated the presence of a single factor explaining 38% of the variance. The internal reliability was strong (· = .92). These results provide evidence for the utility of this instrument to assess social anxiety in countries where Greek is spoken as well as for research involving cross-cultural comparisons. Future directions in research using this instrument are discussed.
