Abstract: 

The aim of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Persian version of Aggression Questionnaire (AQ; Buss &Perry, 1992). For this purpose, two hundred and nine Shiraz university students were selected randomly. All of the subjects completed aggression questionnaire and the general psychopathology questionnaire (scale-25). The reliability of this questionnaire was estimated using different methods: Cornbach alpha, test- retests and Spearman-Brown's split half, with the correlations of 0.89, 0.87 and 0.73 respectively. Correlation analysis revealed that subscales were significantly correlated which were ranged between 0.37 and 0.78. The concurrent validity of the questionnaire estimated by general psychopathology (scale-25) was 0.34 (p</01). Factor analysis of the Aggression Questionnaire, using varimax rotation, revealed 4 factors named, hostility, physical aggression, verbal aggression and anger and these factors estimated over the %46 of the total variance. With relation to sex differences, men earned higher scores on hostility, physical aggression, verbal aggression but not anger. The Persian version of Aggression Questionnaire therefore can be used in laboratory research and therapeutic situations.
