The aim of this study was to analyze the replicability of Zuckerman's revised Alternative Five-factor model in a French-speaking context by validating the Zuckerman-Kuhlman-Aluja Personality Questionnaire (ZKA-PQ) simultaneously in 4 French-speaking countries. The total sample was made up of 1,497 subjects from Belgium, Canada, France, and Switzerland. The internal consistencies for all countries were generally similar to those found for the normative U.S. and Spanish samples. A factor analysis confirmed that the normative structure replicated well and was stable within this French-speaking context. Moreover, multigroup confirmatory factor analyses have shown that the ZKA-PQ reaches scalar invariance across these 4 countries. Mean scores were slightly different for women and men, with women scoring higher on Neuroticism but lower on Sensation Seeking. Globally, mean score differences across countries were small. Overall, the ZKA-PQ seems an interesting alternative to assess both lower and higher order personality traits for applied or research purposes. [less ▲]

This article presents normative data for the Rorschach Comprehensive System (CS) on 100 adult nonpatients from the Belgian French-speaking community. We compare our Belgian sample to a French one (Sultan et al., 2004), data of Exner's (Exner & Erdberg, 2005) and a Californian sample (Shaffer, Erdberg, & Haroian, 1999). Each sample's specific characteristics are explored, as well as findings provided by sample-specific comparison. Exner's data, ultimate normative reference for th CS, differ significantly from the three other samples for many variables. Cultural factors, examiner's level of experience, as well as participants' selection and recruitment, presumably flow into calculated differences between the four samples. Our findings indicate the necessity for consulting normative data for different communities, as well as the indispensabilityof examiners' familiarity with the CS, in order to provide reliable clinical informations.

The Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI; Cloninger, Przybeck, Svrakic, & Wetzel, 1994) is a self-questionnaire developed to assess the 7 dimensions of personality described by Cloninger et al. (1994) with a total of 29 subscales. In 1999, a revised version was proposed by Cloninger (TCI-R). In this study, we present psychometric properties of the TCI-R from 958 French-speaking participants of Belgium. Women exhibited higher scores for harm avoidance, reward dependence, and cooperativeness dimensions. The proposed factorial structure of 4 temperament dimensions and 3 character dimensions was confirmed. The TCI-R inventory had good test-retest reliabilities as well as good alpha coefficients. The addition of 3 new subscales to the original scale for Persistence has produced a very reliable dimension in the TCI-R. [less ▲]
