GONZALEZ, Mauricio I; CASTRO, Pablo J  e  MARTIN, María E. Efficient Personality in Chilean Students of Engineering of First Year. Form. Univ. [online]. 2011, vol.4, n.5, pp.3-12. ISSN 0718-5006.

A study on the construct of Efficient Personality, based on a questionnaire on efficient personality in educational settings.  The psychometric properties of the questionnaire, applied to a sample of 450 university students in Chile, were analysed.  As a result, the questionnaire used consists of 25 items with an internal consistency of 0.88, four factors which account for 48% of the total variance.  In a second analysis, one unique factor was obtained accounting for 58% of the total variance.  The results are consistent with other studies done with Chilean and Spanish samples which confirm the strength of the construct Efficient Personality.  The results also present evidence on the possibility of relying on only one version of the instrument for transcultural studies.  It is concluded that it is necessary to complement the results with studies of predictive capacity to establish the validity of the instrument to identify students who might suffer from adaptation difficulties in the university.
