McGill Friendship Questionnaires

Primary use / Purpose: 

The MFQ-RA is a 16 item questionnaire measuring respondent's feelings towards a friend/friendship. Positive statements about the friendship are responded to along a 9-point scale from "very much disagree" to "very much agree".

Background: 

Drawing from earlier friendship questionnaires such as "the Friendship Questionnaire" and the "Friendship Qualities scale", the McGill Friendship Questionnaire – Respondent's affection (MFQ-RA) was designed to measure both feelings for a friend (Positive Feelings subscale) and satisfaction with the friendship (Satisfaction subscale).

Psychometrics: 

The psychometric properties of the instrument have been examined by Mendelson and Aboud (1997). This unpublished manuscript is available below.
