Abstract:

Background: The concept of “savoring” is the ability to regulate positive emotions through perceiving pleasurable life events. The savoring beliefs inventory (SBI) is a self-report instrument for “savoring” assessment. Objective: This study is aimed to investigate the psychometric characteristics of the Persian version of SBI in a non-clinical sample. Methods: Factor analysis, structural, translation, divergent and convergent validities, as well as retest reliability of SBI were investigated in 365 students of Shahed University. The tools used in the present study included satisfaction with life scale (SWLS), neuroticism and extraversion subscales of NEO five-factor inventory, life orientation (LOT), Rosenberg self-esteem, Beck hopelessness scale (BHS), and prosocial tendencies measure revised (PTM-R). Results: The results of the confirmatory factor analysis showed that 5 factors (reminiscing, not reminiscing, anticipating, not anticipating, and savoring the moment) of the Persian version of the SBI are more valid and reliable. Divergent and convergent validity of the questionnaire were evaluated by satisfaction with life scale (SWLS), neuroticism and extraversion, life orientation (LOT), Rosenberg self-esteem, and Beck hopelessness scale (BHS) were suitable. Prosaical tendencies measure was only correlated with one of the factors of savoring belief inventory. The results of confirmatory factor analysis supported the goodness of fit of the five-factor structure of the questionnaire. Conclusions: The results indicated that the Persian version of the savoring belief inventory has good psychometric characteristics in the general population. Thus this instrument can be used in research and clinical fields with confidence.
