Nikolina Kenig, Ognen Spasovski

Abstract


Inspired by several cases of contradictory findings reported in some
empirical studies related to extrinsic life goals, this study aims to
examine the internal structure of the instrument Aspiration Index,
constructed by Kasser and Ryan. This is done by using exploratory
factor analysis. The sample consists of 419 participants at the age
between 18 and 56, from different towns in Macedonia. Findings show
that the construct of intrinsic and extrinsic life goals is confirmed on
Macedonian population, although there are some differences in that
how the subscales instrument is consist of are structured.


Key words: ASPIRATION INDEX, INTRINSIC AND EXTRINSIC
LIFE GOALS, FACTOR ANALYSIS.
