Abstract

This study presents further evidence for the psychometric properties of the Interpersonal Reactivity Index (IRI; Davis, 1980), a widely used measure for assessing empathic responsiveness. The IRI was administered to a sample of 828 Italian adolescents (47% males), aged from 10 to 20 years (M = 14.75, SD = 2.34), in order to examine its factor structure and reliability. Results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses showed that the hypothesized model of the IRI, representing four domains (i.e., empathic concern, internal distress, fantasy, and perspective taking) provided a reasonable fit for data. Furthermore, the reliability of the scale was satisfactory with good internal consistency. Finally, gender and age were relevant factors to explain the individual differences in the empathic capacity
