International Journal of Research in Teacher Education, vol.13, no.4, pp.32-43, 2022 (Peer-Reviewed Journal)


This study was aimed to examine the psychometric properties of the Self-Talk Scale, which was developed to determine the self-talk frequency of individuals, in a sample of Turkish university students. The data were collected from 332 university students for the analysis. Confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to verify the four-factor structure of the scale in the examination of the psychometric properties of the scale, and the Cronbach alpha value was calculated to determine the reliability of the scale. Confirmatory factor analysis results revealed that the scale had a good fit. The Cronbach's alpha value of the scale was .88.
