AUTHOR : 조진희,진미경

INFORMATION : page. 139~157 / 2017 Vol.24 No.1


This study aims to translate and validate the Adlerian Personality Priority Assessment(APPA) in Korean. The research data was collected from 699 university students living in Seoul city and Kyunggi and Chungcheong provinces to verify levels of confidence and validity using the criteria of explanatory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, correlation analysis, and reliability analysis. Explanatory factor analysis confirmed the composition of factors, which consisted of 21 questions on four factors (pleasing, control, superiority, comfort), the same as in the original criteria. In order to test criteria-related validity, the correlation was examined between the sub-elements and the Social Interest Scale(SIS), Dysfunctional Attitude Scale(DAS), Internal-External Locus of Control Scale(LOC) and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale(RSES), based on preceding researches. The results were: df = 183, χ2 = 610.88, RMSEA = .06, IFI = .90, CFI = .90, and GFI = .92. The results of Chronbach’s α to examine reliability were: Pleasing .83, Superiority .80, Comfort .70, Control .68, and a total of .76. Thus, K-APPA was deemed reliable. As such, K-APPA has been proven to be an appropriate instrument having reliability and validity. Because of this study, K-APPA can help to understand clients’ personality priorities, set up counselling and therapy, and can be utilized in academic fields as well.
