Translation of the Social Desirability Scale-17 into Turkish and Examination of Its Psychometric Properties

Despite the valuable contribution of social desirability to validity in psychological testing, there is a notable paucity of standardized measures. For this reason, the present study aimed to translate the Social Desirability Scale-17 into Turkish and investigate its psychometric properties. A total of 1979 people, 1011 female and 968 male, ranging in age between 18 and 70, participated in the study. Out of these participants, 235 people participated in the test-retest study and 173 people in the criterion-related validity study. The “Social Desirability Scale-17” and the “Five Factor Personality Inventory-Short Form” was administered. It was observed that the scale shows single factor structure, and also the confirmatory factor analysis results revealed acceptable fit index values for the single factor. The Cronbach’s Alpha internal consistency coefficient was 0.72 and the test-retest correlation coefficient was 0.86. The correlation coefficient between the scale and the Social Desirability subscale of the Five Factor Personality Inventory-Short Form was determined as 0.70. The results showed that female participants have significantly higher scores than males. The present results indicated that the form translated into Turkish in this study was quite similar to the original form, and met the basic psychometric characteristics.
