The aim of the study was to analyze the psychometric properties of public and private subscales of the self-consciousness scale (Fenigstein, Scheier & Buss, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 43, 522-527, 1975) on a sample of Turkish University students. Two pilot studies were carried out to explore the efficacy of the translated version. Then, in the main study, the final reliability and construct validity analysis were carried out on a sample of 253 students from various departments of Middle East Technical University. Results confirmed both the two factor structure of the private self-consciousness scale which had been reported by Bunkrant and Page (Journal of Personality Assessment, 48, 629-637, 1984), and Piliavin and Chamg (Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 14, 587-595, 1988) and the psychometric properties of the public self-consciousness scale which had been reported in the original study (Fenigstein et al., 1975). The Turkish version of each subscale is seemingly applicable on Turkish populations. © 1995.
