The CFQ was developed as a measure to assess cognitive fusion and it has a single-factor structure. Each item is rated on a 7-point Likert scale from 1 (never true) to 7 (always true) and the final score is computed through the sum of all items, with higher scores reflecting higher fusion with the content of cognitive events. The Portuguese version of CFQ also showed a one-factor structure composed by seven items and revealed a good internal consistency, an adequate temporal stability in a two-month period, and good convergent and discriminant validities.
