Опросник когнитивной флексибильности (CFI): адаптация на русскоязычной выборке
The Cognitive Flexibility Inventory (CFI) structure was tested for conformity with empirical data collected on university Russian students (N= 298). The CFI is used to assess the type of cognitive flexibility necessary for individuals to successfully challenge and replace maladaptive thoughts with more balanced and adaptive thinking (Dennis & Vander Wal, 2010). Evidence was obtained for the CFI's moderate psychometric properties. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated that initial structure of the CFI poor fit to empirical data. The exploratory factor analysis of the CFI's items conducted on the data of Russian sample was used to determine the number of factors and their items. The two-factor solution was reproduced that was somewhat different from the two-factor solution of developers. The differences were made to original CFI by modifying some items in its subscales. Results from factorial validity investigation indicate Russian version of the CFI (CFI-R) has reliable two-factor structure, excellent internal consistency, and moderate 7-weeks test-retest reliability. Preliminary evidence was obtained for gender dependency of cognitive flexibility aspects assessed by the CFI. The findings suggest that the CFI-R is suitable for its application in research settings, and can be used to assess the university students' cognitive flexibility. The perspectives for further research are defined to examine the diagnostic potentials of the CFI in research purposes as well as in psychological treatment.
