Agreement Convergent Validity

The convergent validity of ZKPQ-50-CC was analyzed by Aluja and Blanch (2011), with similar ZKPQ-50-CC correlated to TCI-R and NEO-FFI-R scales. Positive correlations with similar content scales were found between the ZKPQ-50-CC and TCI-R scales: ImpSS and Novelty Seeking (0.50), N-Anx and Har avoidance (0.58), Sy and reward dependency (0.55), Act and Persistence (0.52) and ImpSS and Self-Transcendence (0.30). The positive correlations between ZKPQ-50-CC and neo-FFI-R were: impSS and extroversion (0.41), N-Anx and neurotizism (0.68) and Sy and E (0.64). Positive correlations were established between the ZKPQ-50-CC and NEO-FFI-R instruments: impSS and extroversion (0.41), N-Anx and Neuroticism (0.68) and Sy and E (0.64). The convergent results of validity are similar to those between the full ZKPQ and the TCI. The strengths and limitations of each of the measures were obvious. URICA has demonstrated excellent internal reliability for each of its subscales; However, analysis of behavioural data revealed very limited support for the validation of the construction of the measure. In agreement with TTM, those who were in the action phase indicated that they injected drugs less often than those who thought about a change (contemplators). Those who reported taking steps to change their drug use behaviour (i.e.: However, those in the action and conservation phase were no different from those who did not (pre-consumers and contemplators) with respect to self-reported drug use and access to low-use treatment.
