Abstract

The study of measuring instrument adaptation aims to discover types of working passion (harmonious passion and obsessive passion) owned by Indonesian employees. The research participants were taken from 114 employees of a media company in Indonesia using purposive sampling technique. There are 7 items of harmonious passion and 7 items of obsessive passion in Passion Scale measuring instrument. Passion Scale is a measuring instrument which were initially created in French, and were translated into English. Back-translation is necessary so that cross-cultural study could possibly be conducted [1] (Marsh et al., 2013). Thus, it is important to ensure that the measuring instrument may be applied in Indonesia due to cultural and linguistic differences. Beaton introduced several stages of measuring instrument adaptation: translation, synthesis, back-translation, expert committee review, and pretest [2]. From the result, reliability score for harmonious passion is 0.851 while reliability score for obsessive passion is 0.719. However, it was found that the reliability score for Passion Scale and the adapted version of Passion Scale was different. The difference implies that passion is a measurement which needs to be adjusted to the culture where a research took place.
