The Chinese version of the revised Self‐Consciousness Scale (C‐SCS) of Scheier and Carver (1985) was administered to 500 Chinese university students. Both exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses revealed that three factors (Private Self‐consciousness, Public Self‐consciousness, and Social Anxiety) were abstracted from the scale, and reliability data also showed that the C‐SCS and its three subscales are internally consistent. While the present findings are generally consistent with the conceptualization of Scheier and Carver (1985) and the data reported previously, an integration of the present study and the data in the literature suggests that some of the items and their related rationales in the original and revised Self‐Consciousness Scale may require refinement and modification.
