BACKGROUND: The original TEMPs-A is a 110-item self-report instrument assessing affective temperaments. It has been translated into 25 languages and validated in more than 12 languages in countries with different cultures. The objective of this study was to validate the Persian brief, 39-item version of the questionnaire. METHODS: After developing the Persian version of the short TEMPS-A through a five-stage method including translation and back-translation, the final autoquestionnaire was validated in a sample of 331 participants from Golestan University of Medical sciences in Iran. RESULTS: Reliability as measured by Cronbach's a was generally good for all TEMPS-A subscales, ranging from 0.632 (irritable subscale) to 0.811 (cyclothymic subscale). Cyclothymic, depressive and irritable were the subscales with the strongest correlations, while hyperthymic with cyclothymic and depressive, and anxious with hyperthymic showed no correlations. Hyperthymic temperament predominated in all participants, followed by anxious temperament. Hyperthy-mic temperament was also the most frequent temperament in the cases with more than one dominant temperament. CONCLUsIONs: Brief-Persian version of TEMPs-A has a generally good internal consistency and can be a useful self-report measure for clinical and epidemiologic research purposes. However, it seems that further adjustments need to be made in order to make the instrument more appropriate for the Iranian culture. © 2020 EDIZIONI MINERVA MEDICA.
