ABSZTRAKT

Elméleti háttér: Az önmagát a boldogság és az emberi erősségek tudományaként definiáló pozitív pszichológia egyik legjelentősebb eredménye a karaktererősségek és erények rendszertanának megalkotása. Cél: Tanulmányunk célja megvizsgálni a Karaktererősségek Teszt 24 itemes, rövidített, felnőttekre kidolgozott, magyar változatának (VIA-H) reliabilitását és validitását, valamint e mérőeszköz mentális egészséggel és szociodemográfiai mutatókkal való kapcsolatát magyar mintán. Módszerek: Három önbeszámolós, kérdőíves, online keresztmetszeti vizsgálat részvevői (∑n = 10 911) kitöltötték a Karaktererősségek Teszt 24 itemes változatát, a Globális Jóllét Kérdőívet, a Diener-féle Virágzás Skálát, a Huppert-féle Virágzás Kérdőívet, a Pozitivitás Skálát és a Rövidített Pszichológiai Immunrendszer kérdőívet. Eredmények: Az összesített mintán elvégzett feltáró faktorelemzés négy faktor meglétét igazolta (sajátértékek: 10,82, 1,68, 1,21, 1,09; kumulatív magyarázott varianciaarány: 61,65%), úgymint: Emberiesség, Bölcsesség és tudás, Mértékletesség, valamint Spiritualitás és transzcendencia. A négy skála mindegyik vizsgálatban kiváló belső konzisztenciaértékeket mutatott (0,738 és 0,885 közötti Cronbach-α- és McDonald-ω-értékek). Az almintákon elvégzett konfirmatív faktorelemzések jó illeszkedést mutattak a feltáró faktorelemzés során nyert négyfaktoros modellhez. A skálák alacsonyabb diszkriminációs (43%-os egyedi rész), de kiváló tartalmi validitását sikerült igazolni (rS > 0,5). A válaszadók körében legmagasabbra értékelt erény az Emberiesség, míg a legkevésbé fontosnak tartott erény a Mértékletesség. A nők statisztikai értelemben kismértékben magasabb értékeket adtak az Emberiesség (d(3756,0) = –15,641, p < 0,001, Cohen-d = 0,378), valamint a Spiritualitás és transzcendencia erény skálákra (d(3900,9) = –12,394, p < 0,001, Cohen-d = 0,293), mint a férfiak. A Bölcsesség és tudás erény pozitív irányú kapcsolatot mutatott az iskolázottsági szinttel (rS = 0,211, p < 0,001). Az egyedül élőknél az Emberiesség erény alacsony szintje (M = 4,85, SD = 0,96; F(3; 9825) = 52,27, p < 0,001, η2 = 0,016) minden más csoporténál szignifikánsan (p < 0,001) alacsonyabb, a házasok átlaga (M = 5,14, SD = 0,78) pedig minden más csoporténál szignifikánsan (p < 0,001) nagyobb volt. Következtetések: A Karakterősségek Teszt rövidített felnőtt magyar változata (VIA-H) megbízható és érvényes mérőeszköznek bizonyult, amely alkalmas az erények és karaktererősségek rendszerének mérésére.
