Abstract

We report the results of a Turkish language translation of the Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory of Personality Questionnaire-Children (RST-PQ-C; Cooper, Stirling, Dawe, Pugnaghi, & Corr, 2017). Seven hundred and thirty-eight primary school students completed the Turkish version of the RST-PQ-C. Confirmatory factor analysis provided evidence for its structure and psychometric properties, confirming a three-factor structure: fight-flight-freeze system (FFFS), behavioural approach system (BAS) and behavioural inhibition system (BIS). Results showed that RST-PQ-C Turkish version is a valid and reliable self-report measure of revised Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory (r-RST). This study contributes to the validation of the RST-PQ-C and it is hoped will facilitate research within the framework of r-RST on children in Cyprus and Turkey.
