Carlos E. González Cifuentes and Luis A. Vera Maldonado
The aim of this research was to analyze the convergent validity of the “Exploratory Questionnaire of Personality-III” (CEPER-III; Caballo, Guillen, Salazar, & Irurtia, 2011) in a sample of 565 participants of Colombia. The questionnaire assesses 14 personality styles that follow the diagnostic criteria of the DSM-IV (APA, 1994) and DSM-III-R (APA, 1987), although they are not disorders. The alpha Cronbach coefficients of the scales ranged from .75 to .87, indicating an adequate internal consistency. Pearson correlations obtained between the CEPER-III (subscales) styles and the Million Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-III (MCMI-III; Million, Davis and million, 2007) disorders (subscales) ranged from .40 to .70, supporting the convergent validity of the CEPER-III. These results indicate that the CEPER-III has adequate psychometric properties to be used in Colombian population and that their items are well understood without problems of cultural appropriateness.
