General Description

The Questionnaire Multidimensional of the

Subjective Temporality (QMTS) was drawn from itens extracted from three instruments of the Temporal Perspective, Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory (ZTPI), Future Time Perspective Scale (FTPS) and Temporal Perspective Inventory (TPI). The QMTS which assesses the subjective temporality of high school students, consists of 37 listed items of a Likert response scale of five points on which 1 = Strongly disagree and 5 = Strongly agree. The items are distributed in six dimensions that explain 59.1% of the total variance: 1) Perception of Uncontrollability (explained variance = 31.4 %, α = .94, items 35, 38, 39, 52, 53 of Fatalist Present of the ZTPI and items 16, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 27 of Instrumentality of the FTPS); 2) Negative Past of the ZTPI (explained variance = 6.8 %, α = .82, items 16, 27, 34, 50, 54); 3) Valency of the FTPS (explained variance = 5.4 %, α = .76, items 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15);  4) Future of the ZTPI (explained variance = 4.6 %, α = .71, items 13, 30, 40, 43, 45, 51); 5) Hedonist Present of the ZTPI (explained variance = 4.0 %, α = .64, items 46, 48, 55); 6) Anxious Future of the TPI (explained variance = 3.7 %, α = .67, 4 items).
