The present study attempts to construct an Experiential Time Perspective Scale, which measures not only the experience of personal future, but also those of the present and the past and, it will measure, at the same time, two aspects of future, namely, hopefulness and goal-directedness. This scale was administered to 460 university and professional school students. The results showed rather high internal consistency and test-retest reliability. Correlational analyses with Time Attitude Scale (Nuttin & Lens, 1985) showed convergent and discriminant validity in each subscale, except for the dimension of hopefulness. However, the different relationships of subscales with fear for the future and self-esteem confirmed the validity of this scale including that of hopefulness.
