General Description

The Self Experiences Questionnaire is a measure of self-as-context, one of the six core processes of the Psychological Flexibility Model. Its portuguese version comprises 12 items (items 8, 12 and 15 were excluded due to poor psychometric properties) with 2 factors: self-as-observer (items 9, 10, 11, 13 and 14) and self-as-distinction (items 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7).
