The main purpose of the study was aimed to examine the psychometric properties of the Saving Cognition Inventory (SCI) in Italian nonclinical samples. Two studies were conducted: (a) study 1 was focused on the confirmation of the factorial structure, internal consistency reliability, and subscales’ intercorrelations on a sample of 252 participants; (b) study 2 was focused on gathering construct validity data on a sample of 244 participants. In addition to the SCI, other seven self-report measures were administered in order to assess hoarding, depression, anxiety, and obsessive compulsive disorder symptoms. Our results supported the hypothesis of four adequately reliable dimensions. Support for both concurrent and convergent validity was provided by significant and positive correlations between SCI scores and the other administered measures. Despite generalization of outcoming findings are limited, overall our research suggests that the SCI may be a valuable tool. Nevertheless, additional studies are still needed.
