Abstract
The aim of the current study is to validate the Short Suggestibility Scale (SSS) into Turkish language, which is a shortened form of Multidimensional Iowa Suggestibility Scale- (MISS). SSS was developed to measure trait suggestibility and found to be related with various clinical and nonclinical entities.
Validation of SSS into Turkish was conducted with a total sample of 294 subjects, 77 subjects between 15-18 years old and 217 subjects older than 18 years old. Apart from SSS all subjects were asked to answer Autonomous-Relational Self Scale (ARSS).
Findings from the current study revealed a five factor model of SSS explains 52,59% of total variance in Explanatory Factor Analysis. The correlations between SSS and autonomous self (r=-.43) and relational self (r=.31) of ARSS were significant. The reliability analyses revealed a score of 0.86 in means of internal consistency of the scale. Test -retest reliability was also significant with a value of r = 0.85; p<.01.
In summary the current study indicated that SSS is a valid and reliable tool to be used in adolescents and adults to measure general suggestibility. This scale is the first measure to asses trait suggestibility in Turkish, therefore we believe that validation of SSS may contribute to literature in means of various clinical and nonclinical researches.

Key words: Suggestibility, Self Perception, Trait Suggestibility
