Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on the measurement properties of the Idea Inventory(Kassinove et al, 1993) which was designed to asses 11 types of irrationalbeliefs described by Ellis. The original 11 subscales were found to lackinternal consistency although the full 33 items showed a Cronbach’s Alphaof 0, 84. We therefore developed a new set of subscales based on the latentstructure of the items and the content of the items. The outcome was arelatively reliable set of five subscales that were also consistent with theoriginal ideas of Ellis. However, there seems to be a need for furtherrevision since many of the items seems to measure emotional reactions toirrational beliefs rather than to the irrational beliefs themselves
