SUMMARY
The Validity and Reliability of the Trypophobia Questionnaire Turkish Form

Objective: It was aimed in this study to translate the 19-item
Trypophobia Questionnaire (TQ) to Turkish and determine its
psychometric reliability and validity.
Method: The study included 154 volunteers consisting of the students
and employees of Bezmialem Vakıf University, and their family
members. The Sociodemographic Questionnaire prepared by the
researchers, the Turkish version of the Structured Clinical Interview for
axis-1 disorders (SCID-I) of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of
Mental Disorders (DSM- IV-TR), the Turkish versions of the Disgust
Sensitivity Scale-Revised Form (DS-R-TR) and the Hamilton Anxiety
Rating Scale (HAM-A-TR) were used.
Results: Turkish Trypophobia Questionnaire (TQ-TR) discriminated
between healthy and phobic individuals. Factor analysis on the TQ-TR
resulted in a single factor structure as in the original study. The TQTR showed a high level of internal consistency with a Cronbach’s α
coefficient of 0.955.
Conclusion: TQ-TR is a valid and reliable psychometric tool to assess
trypophobia in the Turkish population.
