Abstract

There is growing attention in the measurement of future time perspective in the last couple of decades. This concept has been demonstrated to help people manage and achieve goals, including acquiring knowledge, extending social networks, and managing positive emotional experiences. The scale was initially developed in the Occidental countries and widely used there. The authors aimed to translate and validate the Future Time Perspective (FTP) scale into the Indonesian language and test the scale's psychometric properties. Four hundred thirty-one psychology students were recruited to complete the Indonesian version of the scale. Analysis of the scale's internal consistency, construct, and factorial validity was performed using the Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA). The EFA analysis confirmed the two-factor model of the 10-item FTP-I scale as the best solution. Implications and future recommendations of the current study are discussed
