Abstract:

The study was undertaken to investigate the factor structure of the Kuwaiti version of the Desirability of Control Scale (DC; Burger & Cooper, 1979; Hamadah & Abdullatif, 2000) on a sample of 387 Kuwait undergraduate students (males = 152 and females = 235). Six orthogonal (Varimax) factors were extracted. They were labeled General Desire for Control, Leadership, Regard for Autonomy, Avoidance of Dependence, Decisiveness, and Attentiveness. It was concluded that these factors were interpretable and thus the Kuwaiti version of the DC Scale can be recommended for use with Kuwaiti college students and similar groups.
