ABSTRACT Este estudio se enmarca dentro del ámbito teórico del constructo «Personalidad eficaz». Se presenta el estudio de validez interna y fiabilidad de un cuestionario en su origen compuesto por 60 ítems aplicado a estudiantes de los ciclos formativos de grado superior de Formación Profesional, reducido finalmente a 24 ítems, superando su inicial coeficiente alfa de Cronbach de 0,84. Se obtienen seis factores de primer orden: autoconcepto social, autoconcepto académico, capacidad resolutiva, autoestima, expectativa de éxito y afrontamiento de problemas. Se obtiene un único factor de segundo orden denominado «Personalidad eficaz». La solución factorial de seis componentes presenta similitud tanto con la versión española para secundaria como las versiones chilena para poblaciones de secundaria y universitaria, diversificando la inicial dimensión de autoconcepto en autoconcepto y autoestima.

    ABSTRACT: A study on the construct of Efficient Personality, based on a questionnaire on efficient personality in educational settings. The psychometric properties of the questionnaire, applied to a sample of 450 university students in Chile, were analysed. As a result, the questionnaire used consists of 25 items with an internal consistency of 0.88, four factors which account for 48% of the total variance. In a second analysis, one unique factor was obtained accounting for 58% of the total variance. The results are consistent with other studies done with Chilean and Spanish samples which confirm the strength of the construct Efficient Personality. The results also present evidence on the possibility of relying on only one version of the instrument for transcultural studies. It is concluded that it is necessary to complement the results with studies of predictive capacity to establish the validity of the instrument to identify students who might suffer from adaptation difficulties in the university.
