The current article describes the psychometric qualities of a Japanese version of the Creative Experience Questionnaire (Merckelbach, Horselenberg, and Muris, 2001),a brief 25 item self-report questionnaire of fantasy proneness. A sample of normal undergraduate students (n=433) completed CEQ-J and of the 233 completed Imaginative Involvement Inventory (Kasai and Inoue, 1993) and Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES-II: Tanabe and Ogawa, 1992). Factor analysis and reliability analysis indicated that the CEQ-J had simple 3-factor structure and showed high reliability (α=0.83). Furthermore, there are substantial correlations between the CEQ-J and the III and the DES-II, which supports the validity of the CEQ-J as well as original CEQ.
