چکیده

براساس پژوهش‌های پیشین به نظر می‌رسد که توانایی کنترل فکر یک ویژگی تک بعدی و در بین افرادِ مختلف، متفاوت است. هدف از مطالعه حاضر، بررسی پایایی و اعتبار پرسشنامۀ توانایی کنترل فکر لوچیانو و همکاران (2005) در میان دانشجویان بود. جامعه آماری پژوهش، همۀ دانشجویان دانشکده علوم تربیتی و روان‌شناسی دانشگاه اصفهان بودند. 275 نفر از این دانشجویان به شیوۀ نمونه‌گیری تصادفی ساده انتخاب شدند و به پرسشنامه کنترل فکر (لوچیانو و همکاران، 2005) و پرسشنامه نگرانی حالت پن (مایر و همکاران،1990) پاسخ دادند. برای تحلیل داده‌ها از روش‌های تحلیل عاملی اکتشافی و ضریب همبستگی استفاده شد. نتایج نشان داد که تحلیل عاملی با یک بعد، 7/43درصد واریانس را تبیین می‌کند و بارهای عاملی 23 سؤال بالاتر از 59/0 و در نتیجه مناسب هستند (01/0P < ). اعتبار همزمان پرسشنامۀ کنترل فکر لوچیانو با پرسشنامۀ نگرانی حالت پن نیز تأیید شد (01/0P < ). همچنین، نتایج نشان داد که مردان نسبت به زنان و افراد مسن نسبت به افراد جوان توانایی کنترل فکر بالاتری دارند (01/0P < ). بر اساس این یافته‌ها، پژوهشگران می‌توانند از ابزاری نوین و کوتاه استفاده کنند که مقایسه و ارزیابی کنترل فکر در افراد را ساده‌تر می‌کند.

چکیده [English]

According to pervious researches it seems that thought control ability is a one-dimensional trait and it differs from one person to another. The aim of the current study was to investigate the reliability and validation of Thought Control Ability Questionnaire –TCAQ- (Luchiano et al., 2005) among students. The statistical population of the study included all the students of psychology and educational sciences, in the University of Isfahan. 275 students were selected as sample through simple random sampling and responded to TCAQ and Penn State Worry Questionnaire-PSWQ-(Meyer et al., 1990). Factor analysis and correlation coefficient used for analyzing data. Findings indicated that factor analysis with one dimension explains 43.7 percent of variance and the factor loadings of 23 items is higher than 0.59 (P < 0.01) and therefore suitable. Concurrent validity of Thought Control Ability Questionnaire with Penn State Worry Questionnaire was confirmed (P < 0.01). Also, the results showed that men compared to women and old people compared to younger people have higher thought control (P < 0.01). According to findings, researchers can use a new and short instrument that makes comparing and assessing individual’s thought control easier.
