Özet

The aim of this study is to examine the factor structure and reliability of the Purpose in Life scale (PIL) in Turkish culture.1367 university students volunteered to participate in the study. A principle component analysis with promax rotation revealed that four items failed to meet a minimum criteria of having a primary factor loading of .4 or above and no-cross-loading of .3 or above. Excluding those four items, a principle component analysis with promax rotation with 16 items of PIL was conducted again. The result demonstrated that the Turkish version of PIL had three interpretable factors: Quality of Life, Meaning and Purpose, Freedom. A Cronbach’s alpha of .91and a split-half reliability of .92 were computed for the scale, indicating that the scale is satisfactorily reliable.
