Capitalization is an interpersonal process where one shares personal positive events with others and receives benefits beyond that event’s effect. The response a capitalizer perceives from the recipient determines the success of this process. The Perceived Responses to Capitalization Attempts Scale (PRCAS) is an English-language measure used to assess a capitalizer’s perception of a recipient’s responses. We tested the factor structure, internal consistency reliability, and concurrent validity of the Chinese version of the PRCAS with a sample of 1,213 Chinese college students. Factor analyses replicated the 4-factor model of active–constructive response, passive–constructive response, active–destructive response, and passive–destructive response. All subscales possessed satisfactory internal consistency and evidence for concurrent validity with measures of feeling, flourishing, self-esteem, and mental health symptoms. We also assessed the test–retest stability of the PRCAS with a separate sample of 119 Chinese college students, and found that the subscales possessed low test–retest reliability. Therefore, the Chinese PRCAS possessed acceptable psychometric properties.
