Abstract [en]

AIM: to replicate and establish the psychometric properties of the 74-item comprehensive Ethos Towards Wellness Questionnaire in a healthy Norwegian population in terms of content and construct validity as well as homogeneity and stability reliability.

METHOD: A questionnaire with a methodological and developmental design was sent on two occasions to 214 healthy middle-aged participants and processed in two phases.

RESULTS: The three life context and the ethos indexes at ordinal scale level showed an overall satisfactory construct validity (communalities > 0.30, factor loadings > 0.30, and factor total variance > 50%). On two occasions 4 weeks apart, reliability in terms of homogeneity (Cronbach's α > .70) and stability (intraclass correlation coefficient > 0.70) were also considered satisfactory for the same four indexes.

CONCLUSIONS: This newly developed and possibly only questionnaire that focuses on "grasping the big human picture," based on both philosophical reasoning and empirical recommendations of wellness, was found to be valid and reliable in the screening and follow-up of wellness and ethos in a healthy Norwegian population.
