Social competence is concerned to how people perceive and act in a
variety of social situations. This study evaluates the psychometric
characteristics of the Perceived Social Competence Scale (PSC-Car).
Participants were 572 Portuguese adolescents (M=13.28 years; SD=.59) who
are in the 8th grade. Results of the Confirmatory Factor
Analysis suggest a factorial solution consisting of eight factors. The
global indices of fitness of the model are quite robust, proving that it
is a good solution in the adjustment of empirical data (X2/df=4.097,
CFI=.895, GFI=.851, RMSEA=.079). The results stimulate the development
of new researches and interventions that approach social skills in order
to develop socially intelligent behaviors for career adaptation,
advancement and success of young people.
