Our aim in this study was to determine the reliability and validity of the Turkish version of the Workaholism Battery (Spence & Robbins, 1992). The original scale was translated into Turkish and then administered to 175 working graduates. Confirmatory factor analysis yielded a 2-factor solution with 9 items established in the first factor (WE) and 11 in the second (D). The reliability coefficient of the new shortened scale was .83 and the split-half reliability coefficient was .69. This scale has adequate criterion-related validity, with a positive correlation between the Jenkins Activity Survey–Type A Behavior subscale (Jenkins, Zyzanski, & Rosenman, 1979) and both WE and D. The congruence between the findings and the literature is discussed.
