In the present study, we examined the construct validity of scores on the Hebrew version of the Adolescent and Adult Time Inventory-Time Attitudes Scale (AATI-TA). The AATI-TA was translated into Hebrew by bilingual speakers, using the back-translation method. Participants included 452 young adults (Mage = 22.47, SDage = 1.98, 51.5% female). Several measures of psychological well-being were used to establish convergent validity, including scales assessing self-esteem, life satisfaction, and optimism, and depressive, anxiety, and somatic symptoms. Internal consistency estimates for AATI-TA scores were high and confirmatory factor analyses supported the six-factor structure. Correlational analyses indicated the expected relationships between time attitudes and measures of psychological well-being, providing convergent validity support for the AATI-TA scores. The findings of this study support the use of the Hebrew version of the AATI-TA in further studies about time attitudes.
