An Icelandic translation and validation of the revised 19-value Portrait Values Questionnaire
Recently, Schwartz et al. (2012) proposed a refined theory of human values distinguishing between 19 values, instead of the original 10, some of which derive from a finer partitioning of previously broader values. Alongside these refinements in the theory a new questionnaire PVQ-RR was developed and has been tested and validated in several different languages. Our study adds to the growing evidence of the validity of the refined theory and instrument. We develop and validate the Icelandic translation of the revised 19-value Portrait Value Questionnaire in a student sample (n = 833) using confirmatory factor analysis and multidimensional scaling. The overall model and the Icelandic translation are well-supported, demonstrating the discriminant validity of the new 19-value partitioning of the Schwartz values continuum in a Nordic culture and language branch.
