Meins, E. and McCarthy-Jones, S. and Fernyhough, C. and Lewis, G. and Bentall, R. P. and Alloy, L. B. (2012) 'Assessing negative cognitive style : development and validation of a short-form version of the Cognitive Style Questionnaire.', Personality and individual differences., 52 (5). pp. 581-585.
The Cognitive Style Questionnaire (CSQ) is a frequently employed measure of negative cognitive style, associated with vulnerability to anxiety and depression. However, the CSQ’s length can limit its utility in research. We describe the development of a Short-Form version of the CSQ. After evaluation and modification of two pilot versions, the 8-item CSQ Short Form (CSQ-SF) was administered to a convenience sample of adults (N = 278). The CSQ-SF was found to have satisfactory internal reliability and test–retest reliability. It also exhibited construct validity by demonstrating predicted correlations with measures of depression and anxiety. Results suggest that the CSQ-SF is suitable for administration via the Internet.
